couch with coffee

For weeks leading up to a trip,

I plan and consider how to spend

the days away.

Reading, resting, visiting, exploring…

I make more plans than

there are minutes in the day.

However, as I turn the key

in the bolt to our front door,

I breath in the comforting scents

of home.

Cozy slippers,

the well-worn corner

of the kitchen couch.

Travel is invigorating

but home is essential.
