The Very Heart Of Things

Its been awhile since I visited the Pub.  
When I read Brian's post "A New Dawn" 
...well what can I say, I had to join in for old times sake
The steps creaked, impaired by time
With hesitation I caressed the railing
The porch scent was welcoming 

 Overwhelming melancholy was tangible 
With each breath so deep 
I surrendered and closed my weeping eyes 

With one sure step the threshold 
transported me back in time...
To the beginning...now the end
Yet everything old seemed new again

After the body rush, little remained 
Wanderlust lead to many a place
But always we seem to return to grace 

In an old house
In the very heart of things
I sat and reminisced
On the old Porch swing
