And come inside,
Sit on the couch,
And read a book.
She wonders what the beds would be like- soft, warm, comforting- a place of rest.
What wonders await in the kitchen? Cookies? Pie? Home-made sushi?
She wants to feel at home enough to strip her clothing, run a hot bath and soak with a cold drink at her elbow.
And to play music long and loud into the night, to watch television on the couch, and look out from the window,
And pity the poor souls who have a house but not a home.

Rolls in the grass
Dotted with Clover
And little bees
On a summer day
In one of the only places in this town I cherish.

But I always order Teriyaki with the proper pronunciation.
And Eunyuk has no 'k'.
There is something odd in the way Kelly "can" - Missouri?
Even if I spoke every language perfectly everyone would still know where I am from.
My English is very good (though perhaps not perfect) but it is that specific brand of English.
A Dream That Should Not Have Been Deferred?When I was a child, I wanted to be a marine biologist.A Dream That Should Not Have Been Deferred? by HalfNotePoet
My bookshelf was full of books about sharks and dolphins.
I found out at a young age (ten or eleven) That I have a learning disability. I was told by society that girls could not excel at science.
That is when the dream got deferred.
But how will not be able to find the square root of a triangle affect my ability to attend to the injured fin of a Great White?
Will a dolphin's bottlenose grin be less wide for a woman than a man?
I have studied these five years- perhaps wrongly.
And now I feel it is too late to save that dream deferred.
