Poetry Interlude: Departure



My bags are packed and sitting by the door. The car awaits.

Whether the destination is Kalamazoo or Kuala Lumpur,  I pass through my house in silent reflection

Visiting each room
Grateful for our common experience
Thankful for the people who have shared it

I beseech it to remain safe and strong until my return.

Every departure is an intimation of the last.
