You Belong – A Poem

Artwork by Catrin Welz-Stein . Written for prompt at DversePoets.

You are home

in mind & heart,

You belong – just as you are.

Betwixt this business

between the

nostalgic magic of

sleeping sunbeams

and the reality of a

million imperfect stars-

You are enough-

You are home,

You are not alone-

and you are loved.
