Home for Christmas


The snow-covered world ushers me home
the road stretching out beneath me
as the stars array themselves overhead

this time of year
I follow not Polaris
but Orion
his belt my beacon
East east east
homeward

The mountains rise
my mountains
not to be conquered
but befriended
like a funnel
they channel me
the final miles

Home
snow and sunshine
your outsides are cold
but your insides feel warmth
comfort
Peace.
