7 arguments for staying

Stay, for back home
the open mouth
and open arms
are wounds and ever
wind round the spool;
Stay, more is your adventure
here, flowers yet
will bloom, that fist pump,
first jump of possibility
peaking through, like morning
fog that feathers itself
across the horizon
and you, with boots on
hiking through, stay.
