The Wanderer

Stay here
my mind
who wants to wander
on her own.

Stay here
sit with me
Enjoy this place
that houses you
and nurtures you
with food and wine.

Stay here
in silence
as thoughts arise.
Let them pass.

Stay here
and drink in gratitude
for your lovely life
and cool breezes
and streams that run
over your toes.

Stay here
while the moon shifts positions
and stars explode
and crickets claim their ground.

Stay here
while the sun gently rises
and sheds light on your eyes
so you can see
there is nowhere to go.
