This will do

The earth is rising up
through floorboards and wood laminate
to draw down my roots.
birdsong and faint machines,
turtle flapping and splashing in his tank.
a pen and fat notepad,
and my second-favorite coffee in my favorite mug.
All my hard work,
and the work I didn’t do,
has brought me here.
