Front Step

As I sit amongst you
          ghostly streets of silence
And measure from my stair
          how many quiet miles beyond me
           lay unfolded like a road map
          of tiny names
           and pathways unexplored
I turn and face the comforts
           of a warm embracing light
           and journey not
            into the cold unfettered night.
