Becomes

the foreign becomes familiar
the thought-out becomes second nature

we find smoothed ways where
difficulties used to lie
doors open easily
to rooms become expected
windows' air wafts breezily
unstuck and unbound

the foreign becomes familiar
the jumbled becomes clearer

a sight once strange and new
turns into a welcome home
the small solutions to what and where
become a larger web of ease
mysteries lose their trickery
as gentler ones take their place

a house becomes a home
a lover becomes a love

the foreign becomes familiar
the distance becomes the nearer
