Here & There (Poem 117)

after spending years 
in the dull
I am coming home
to the delightful

during my time here
in the dark 
I've thirsted 
for cool white light 

homesick for sweetness
I've lost my taste
for bitter disappointment
 
the scenery here
is outstanding
and the people so nice

but emeralds and pearls
will never suit me 
as well 

as a cup of jasmine tea 
in a quicksilver bath 
of moonlight
