home is a sacred space
set-apart space
sanctuary

safety from the chaos and rush of the world

a retreat, a resting place

hearth and holy place and home

I light my little candle and watch the flicker flame
this is the only hearth I have

I long for home

A leaf on the wind
blown here and there
unsettled.
Its roots are—where?
Across the seas and skies,
a journey long and far,
expensive too.
Is there a scar
where leaf was torn from tree?
Can it put down roots here
and tell them true
that this is home that will not disappear?

Results must be replicable to be reliable. That's how the scientific method works.

I have a second Patreon (to keep poetry and bloggery separate), and the blog post series discussed there will be kicking off on sunbowpublications.com tomorrow.

when life changes
in heartbeats
the world shakes

it rattles the china
and shatters the notion
that life is as
you thought that
it was

the world shakes
and stands still
and spins on

if you're damned if you do
if you're damned if you don't
then just do
or just don't
as you will
or you won't
for you're damned either way
and it's not fair to say
that
you should or you shouldn't
you could or you couldn't
it's only for you
if you would or you wouldn't
and blame goes astray
if it's anywhere but
ignominious They.

I can be anything I want to be.
You taught me that.
Education is important.
You taught me that.

Perhaps I learned too well )

Today I wear butterfly earrings.

Transition
transformation
metamorphosis:

I was a caterpillar
and now I am free.

My manager says
in the January chill
"Oh, you're thinking about spring."

Who are you?
That answer tells me
what face to show to you.
Who are you?
I need to know
what name to answer to.
The name my mother gave me
is not my own
but yes it is.
The name I chose myself
is one I rarely hear
but often see.
Different faces, different places.
Different names for different spaces.
Who are you?
Can I be honest with you?
Who am I?
