Random Poem:

If I Find Juniper, I know I’m Home

On a warm winter night with calming winds
a grieving man dragged himself like a second body
The streets were dry with salt residue
“If I find juniper, I know I’m home.”
Some houses sit and some lay, but this one stood,
It stood for his lungs full of honey air
And wishes that had yet to come true
His love, alone in a white room
With wood floors and crisp music
Through the window he could feel the shining chandelier warm his face
