A Cabin in the Woods

A Cabin In the Woods

Beloved Ones are like

a cabin in the woods


A safe place to stop

along the journey home


Warm fire of family

of being oneself


No need to cloak

my vulnerability


Or hide my face

in a mask


Feast and refresh

take the nourishment


Rest for the next leg of the road

be it stoney or steep


Another cabin will appear

a light in the window


Will beckon me

when needed most

Time to grow again

Head for the woods for a walk

Look for the log

That fills my eye

Coming from my heart

It distorts my vision

Of the other

Puts them in the worst light

And me in the best

Help me, Father

Take this log

So that I may turn and love my brother
