Like Frost’s definition

of style  –

proper words in proper places –

everything in the home

one inhabits

appears fine

barring the essential

and  inevitable

displacements that occur

when living is involved.

Inside one’s being

the story is different:

the condition  within

caused by

whatever  one consumes

for body and mind

determines more definitely

what one is.

For one’s interiors

to properly blend

with the exterior

mindfulness has to rule

over oneself

and those

who are around.

Only then

it could be safely taken

at face value

what meets the eye.
