Reflections of Home

Mirror Tree


“… to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.”
― Carl Sagan


For as long as I have known myself,

I have been searching for a place,

called home.


I have named many locations,


for the sake of simplicity,


I never believed,

I was home.


When people asked,

Where are you from?

I didn’t know.


I gave many answers,

here, there,

for the sake of simplicity,


I didn’t have roots,

I was a windblown seed.


Then I saw it,

the place,



In a photograph,

taken from afar,

of a little blue dot,

roots of gravity,

keeping me here,

it’s as simple as that.


“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”
― Helen Keller
