Exiles in this World

The striving to make this space familiar is paramount

until one day we recognize that the toxins around us

are temporary

The home we have created was purchased

through hours and hours of work

and online shopping

The house is rocked by wind we didn’t


Our family and friends move away

The chance to look beyond our mailbox is

a gift

Let us call it what it is –

a divine encounter

to traipse beyond the lawn

and see down the street

and across the other lawns

and in-ground pools

to the sky

and beyond
