Nomad Life Cycle Bust

DSCN0885
I
wander
if nomads are peaceful?
Or do they defy
their name?
Is their life cycle
the typical boom or bust type
as new frontiers they tame?
Do they consider a home not a thing to be sought,
or do they carry it with?
Although certainly roots could be entangling,
I’ve difficulty believing it bliss.
Perhaps the bug has not sought me.
I’ve never felt its bite.
For now with my family
I much prefer home
to the nomad’s wandering life.
