our night at zero george

August 31, 2018

(written about this)

we are here for one night
but the experience is everlasting.
solace drew us in with the dawn
and a calm,
despite the relentless
summer downpour.

the dinner
was untouched by drama.
it was crafted by hands
whose passion is cooking;
whose love for his family
is reflected in food.

we were there for one night –
tourists in our own town,
seeing familiar streets
through an unfamiliar lens
but comforted by
a mirror of home
with new family
and the warmth of hospitality.
