back home

they said there was snow back home today

how i long for those swollen gray clouds and the soft flakes to fall upon my upturned face

it is raining here today

far from frozen wonderlands and left dreary and sad

no slush upon my shoes no frost upon my beard

just the haze of misty droplets upon my shaven skull

sitting alone on the couch wishing i was elsewhere

anywhere but here

in a cozy room with a fire crackling and your head resting on my shoulder

the scent of wildflowers and wood burning filling with me peaceful sighs

they said it snowed back home today

a home i’ll i don’t recall
