Our home

Our home

is not a building

erected today

to crumble slowly

in some future age,

or be unwittingly

possessed by another .


Our home is beyond location,

beyond any form that is

concrete and dusty,

beyond any place here or there

in time and position

that can be swept away

by the broom of history.


Our home is present



and in futures unknown,

and held as a beautiful

pattern of being

in memories passed

and memories shared,

in ways once lived

that can be lived again.
