Only while moving do we
know the joys of

examining what has
always been

around us.
Like at the B&B in Vermont

when we considered
the owner

in a different light
when he said he'd left

a faster life behind
to choose

each morning
a view of the mountains.

The reformed rock star
the world traveler

come home
to stay

are the only ones
we really want to hear.
