The Wanderer

by SprinklinThoughts

falling flakes
and blanket of snow
cover all that eye can see
be it friend or foe

white sea undulating
white curtain swirling

star shaped wafers
dry, wet, cold
cover the wanderer
who stands outside home

within, fire burns bright
gold yellow flames
give heat and light
warm both body and soul

radiant firelight
through window casts glow
as glass panes reflect
wanderer’s eyes, windows to his soul

inside, outside
body and home
hearth, heart, flame, and soul
merge into one

and learns the wanderer
he need wander no more
