The Man in the Wilderness

Feeling like a lodger
In my own home
Thankful for my music
And my new found roam

Families and communities
They are just so hard to find
But in April 2009
I found the most precious kind

I found the name amusing
So the button i clicked on to see
The layout was very inviting
Like an open door should be

For in a matter of minutes
On first uploading a poem
This Highlander was content
He had found a welcome home

So many lovely writers
Poets who share their bless
No longer this Scotsman is
The Man in the Wilderness

    Everyone can relate to these feelings, James. It is usually feelings of loneliness that bring us to Poetry Soup. Once here, the loneliness disappears and we make wonderful friends. You have found a new home here filled with loving people. Love you, Carolyn
