On my way home,

I found I was not alone—

hope climbed in and sat beside me—

a silence occupied with smiling.

And all around

the dying sun

touched the road and trees

and made them gold—

so much like kindness

if kindness had a color.

I saw my mountain, mother-like,

waiting where it always was

for me to come back home.
