The looming task casts its shadow

Moody silence

Punctured by pressing questions

Muddled with offers, emails, meetings, and MLS

It’s an impasse

Pros and cons pulled out of tightened throats between measured words

Racing hearts dragging sleepless minds

What’s to lose or gain?

And then the decision is made

Breathe returns

We’re staying

  1. Oh I want more details! For now I’ll just have to be happy for you that you can feel settled, and sad for me that you won’t become my neighbour. 🙂 Beautiful poem friend.

  2. I didn’t exhale until the last line…. ! Thought of you as I finished a book this week : “Notes from a Blue Bike,” by Tsh Oxenreider.
