Lost, then found by secrets bound
the skies are much the same.
My timings off, but then I scoff
at changes rough and tame.
I traveled far, beneath the stars
the opposite of home.
I think of friends and in the end
I ponder all alone.
The dreams I keep, when not in sleep
walk with me every step.
I use those visions, for decisions
until there’s nothing left.
The days go by, till I can fly
back home to friendly ground.
I seek my space, as I retrace
old paths to lost and found.
My garden needs, more water, seeds,
neglect has made me stale.
It’s time to pause, review life’s cause
and find my holy grail.
