Thank you room of my own
For holding all that was in me

All of the bits and pieces
of my quest to find Elinor.

I came scattered
And I leave whole.

This monk time
Of silence and work,

Of calming down,
Rejecting distractions,

Focusing, walking,
Sitting, breathing,

Sleeping in the loft
Like Heidi,

Remembering, thinking, 
Hunting for the core

Here, where I sit alone with myself 

And with you.
