I have been away
from this shell and its familiar curves
turning around in circles
spiral outward
reaching through empty doorways
half opened windows
beckoning begging
I have been away
reaching the shore
through clear water
walking in the rain
quiet evening in the woods
sitting late in the moonlight
and laying in the sunlight
to watch the hawks flying overhead
in low and long lazy circles
drawing me homeward
to fill the doorways
with my body
the windows with my eyes
the laughter and love
through the hallways
and beyond to the skies

I have been away
waiting to return
