Simple Pleasures

at the airport people and planes are waiting
at the gate on both sides of the sliding glass door
feelings and metal birds are randomly rotating
some red colored eyes will begin to pour

having flown thousands of miles high and low
fleeing from solitary traces of their past
tears unveil what kindred spirits know
huge hugs the heartfelt homecoming at last

having reached their gorgeous and homely porch
sharing more than one memory or a worded thought
two soul mates touched by the warm light of a lit torch
talking what their solitary lives have taught

mutual feelings continuously pop up out of the blue
this shared space feels like a true home at last
closest friends share anyway what they already knew
their suffocating childhood and parental cold passed

a flock of birds lands in their garden and in the oak tree
the biggest red-feathered Cardinal in the tree chirps
all together they orchestrate a heavenly symphony
soul mates touched by a healing power that really works
