To Build A Home

they rented a home
to live in together
they rented a home
because renting was more
ingrained in the present than a mortgage
they only wanted a space
that could be filled with their love

they rented a home
but they were actually building it
every day
in a constant and natural wu wei

they built their home
and their own and shared life
without fully grasping it
neither of them realized how easy
everything was
being happy, being engaged
embracing nowness every

they assumed it was normal
but people around them
were different

it was not their problem

they had a home of their own
