oh thing that consoles

how clumsily i thank you
for kind homes in which to rest
for waking with friends
for breakfasts in bed
for clear minds and attentive reading
for the peacefulness of rain
for food that satisfies and treats my body well
for the invisible man humming behind the wall of mailboxes
for feeling like a misfit among the scientists
for peace, peace, peace
and a profound sense of being at home
