    Hiraeth

    Standing on
    the frozen shores
    of the lake
    reflections casting
    tattoos of ink
    across crystalline blue
    I watch
    the Canadian geese
    stretch their wings
    to the sun
    their V formation
    pointing towards
    repatriation
    envious of the simplicity
    with which two straight
    lines conjunct
    the lines of my own life
    right angled in comparison
    steering me sharply away
    from where I need to be
    the plaintive honkings
    my hiraeth calling
    for me to open my arms
    and follow them home

    Joy
