Coming Home, Lake Vera - Poem by Craig Steiger

After days down freeways
I come home to frosty woodsides
Where a night of snow
Has graced every surface,
I can breathe again gazing at clouds-
I feel the fast life of salaries & carshine
Interrogating this hidden quiet way
But I too sift like fresh snow
Through the aimless shank & swirl
To trace the tiny ledges of the unlatched gate

    Nice, Craig, particularly the keen observation of the restorative nature of home. Evokes a sense of peace that is palpable.
