How Holland Connects Us

It’s not how it used to be
That Holland was the most difficult
place to return to
How its grey immediately invaded me
and took away my colours
leaving me longing
for another place that I could call my home

Instead, this time Holland offers me
a comfortable, warm coat
When I step from the airplane
into its stormy, cold weather
Because I realize, that Holland
holds the memories of the two of us
Where we first met
The place that connects us
and that generously offers its ground
for us to meet again
And therefore the right place
for me to be
