long way home

the house remains the same;
only time is faithless.
driving all this way to watch the woods grow darker—
the orchard in the rain;
the fields, the tractor;
the wind that brushes past, on its way to northward...

and we remain the same;
only time is changing.
waking up each day to watch it blow right past us;
the stars that wheel and turn,
the tide that’s rising;
the tiny little shells
that whisper on the sea floor...

long way home.
