The world spins

gravity pulls at our shoulders 

as we try to hang on 



The days come and go

oscillation between

chaos and calm 



There are times we need a safe island

a still and quiet place to catch our breath

inhale and exhale 

 

It could be a back porch or   

might be a long ride in a car

often it is a familiar doorway and 

                                                                                     the frame that surrounds it

 

solid, familiar, non-judgemental
