WISCONSIN

We are known for our football, bratwurst, and beer,
Iridescent blue lakes with fresh waters, crystal clear,
Summer's sun blazes hot enough to make skin burn,
Cheese producing dairy farms are around every turn,
Our bright autumn leaves change their colors with ease,
Near spring, the scent of lilac floats upon the breeze,
Snowy winters, with temperatures below zero degrees,
In our green forests, raccoons and deer have a home,
Near the roadside, wildflowers grow wherever you roam.

Harley-Davidson was born, where the eagles fly free,
Wisconsin is as close to heaven, as home can be.

Home Sweet Home

How heavenly the haven of my long-past youth.
Overflowing feelings of  joy I came to know.
Melancholy melted midst the mirth of my family.
Embraced by love, I knew that I could face the world.

Safety lay within the walls of this sanguine sanctuary.
Warmth and a wealth of goodness too would follow me.
Everything I needed in my early education was provided. 
Encouraged by parents and siblings, I have memories to keep
Throughout my life because of home sweet home.

Hope will never die no matter where I roam, for
Only those we truly love remain forever in our hearts.
Moments pass so quickly. That’s mortality!
Eternity will find me home again with family.

Welcome Home

W eeping fills the hangar as his casket is brought out,
E mbraced by Old Glory's colors, a fitting soldier's shroud.
L oved one's hearts are shattered, future hopes, dreams are crushed;
C omrades in arms salute him, adding a bittersweet touch.
O verwhelming grief consumes those left behind,
M eaningless words, platitudes spoken to be kind.
E arnest tales of bravery told of him who died.

H eavy with emotion, a nation shares regrets,
O ffering condolences to those who won't forget.
M any a brave soldier has been welcomed home this way.
E nding future ventures, they've come home to stay.

Home Sweet Home

Happy is the family who makes a house a home,
One that holds within its walls, all those special
Moments of love and rich laughter shared with 
Everyone who crosses through our opened door.

Sanctuary of comfort that welcomes me home,
Whether I've been away for one day or a year.
Elegantly furnished it may not appear to some 
Eyes, but as sweet as honey, it always is to me.
Thankful am I, to have a home to call my own.

Haven of refuge it's been. I pray God keeps me safe
On days of physical, emotional, and spiritual storms.
May I never forget that my home is a blessing that
Enfolds my family beneath the strength of its eaves.

No place like home

hindered thoughts of childhood
often elude my mind
memories come in fragments now
escaping through corners of eyes

sometimes i see you in dreams
waiting for you to reach out
emotionless i speak
eager for one last touch
till you fade again

home is but a memory
of a father's love and devotion
mother's lullabies fading in time
eternally gone from all but mind

A House Is Not A Home


Another day passes yet here I stand
Home is somewhere that my heart can land
Open your eyes and you shall see
Unleash your spirit and learn to be free.

Sometimes the world just beats me down
Everything vanishes and no one’s around
I don’t understand why this happens to me
Seeing then understanding seems to be key.

Now that my heart knows where to go
Only one thing I shall need to know
Today will pass regardless of what I do
Another step closer to understanding what’s true.

Home is a place where your heart feels safe
One step closer to reaching this place
Many words are spoken yet few are heard
Everyone knows home is more than a word.

Nanaimo

     ~~~ Nanaimo, B.C. ~~~


Nestled in the center of this Pacific isle,
a gem of a city, your heart it will beguile.
Nicest climate in all of our Country fair.
Air fresh from the ocean surrounding us there.
Imagine a city filled with parks all around,
mountains behind us as nature abounds.
Oh, the beauty of this place simply astounds.

Be sure to stop by if you're ever this way.
Chances are you will love it and you'll want to stay.

A     cacophony of constant pressure; life remains a stressful race,

I      nability to love, relationships lift anchor and set sail without chase,
C     hildren crushing dreams under mortgages; age grows with disgrace

FLORIDA

Flamingos pink and perky love wading in the glades,
Lazing on white sand beaches you'll see tourists on display.
Oranges grow in groves off'ring juicy sweet splendor,
Rainy days combust into lightning flash and thunder.
Interesting marine life, such as Manatees, dwell here,
Days of blazing sunshine draw many Snowbirds near.
Alligators do abound - just want to make that clear!

To sum it up, Florida can be a tropical paradise.
A great place to live if you don't like snow and ice.

3/26/14

(For those of you unfamiliar with the term "Snowbirds": It's the nickname for the Northerners
who come spend their winters in Florida's warmer climate)

O n top of the Waianae mountain range.

E nveloped by mysterious misty clouds.

W elcome they are when they return home on

E veryone shares home cooked meals to celebrate.
T imbers grace our mountain's face overlooking the sea below.

E very sunrise I give thanks for our heavenly home.

NEWFOUNDLAND

N atural beauty that dazzles the eyes
E nveloped by the Alantic ocean it lies
W inters are long with lots of storms
F og so thick it defies the norms
O ffbeat people who like to have fun 
U nusal named towns, Dildo is one
N ewfinese slang, a translator you may require
D angerously high winds can sometimes transpire
L  oads of tiny islands, over 7000  waiting for you to explore
A bundance of sea food, oil, ice burgs and moose to hunt for
N icknamed 'The Rock', breathtaking mountains and hiking trails to ascend 
D are to be 'screeched in' and become an honorary Newf and forever friend

*Screeched in: An initiation ceremony where the person must drink screech rum, kiss a cod and speak some Newfoundland slang.
The participant then becomes on honorary Newfoundlander.

HOME SWEET HOME

Halcyon memories of days gone by
obstruct me from the rain outside
mother and father's beautiful smiles
emancipate me from the fears of life

Siblings, laughing, playing and fighting
wonderful times of happiness and joy
effervescent sanctuary for growth
ebullient habitat helping me flourish
threshold to the womb of my soul

How I long to be where I belong
originate to a place full of love
my family around supporting me
except, I'm trapped in an orphanage

RHAPSODY OF SWEET HOME






H azily, as nightfall glides ,I unlock the front-gate
O verwrought from drills of a riddled job, 
M y toes stumble on scented violet buds 
E nhancing  gripped thoughts to drip-drop away.

S omehow, Mom’s roast chicken trails along
W here piano notes soften the blues… and there,
E merging through a hall; Oh Granpa appears
E ager to spend a ritual of my life’s rhapsody;
T urning my drones into an abode’s breezy song.

H eartfelt jousts ring  to nourish time’s warmth,
O ften soothing an outer world, restless… yet this
M erriment flames brightly in this safe refuge,
E ver precious as restful chants of heaven’s lyre.

Give me that controller, I command with a shout
After this game and don't be a lout
Modern Warfare my dad adores
I know what I like, it's Halo 4

Gaming's the best on Xbox 360

The Isle Of Man

Travel on our steam railway and step back in time
Historic village at Cregneash it really is divine
Enjoy traditional Manx seafood the ’Queenies’ are sublime

Irish Sea surrounds us with its beautiful coastal paths and craggy cliffs
Sandy beaches see sunbathers and swimmers in the sunshine
‘Lady Isabella’ Laxey’s waterwheel leaves you breathless by its size
Endless rolling green hills and wide-open spaces, it’s a walker’s paradise

Open roads to drive on with no speed limits in places
Fly here or sail and escape to our far-flung shores

Motorcycles whiz around the famous TT course
Amazing scenery delights with breathtaking views
Nowhere on earth I would rather live
 

Come and visit my homeland by the sea
Lets meet up soon and have a cup of tea

Los Angeles

Living in the city of lights
One among many Angels in flight 
Souls that connect, artists we are

Always a place to converse with a star
Never boring or lonely because 
Gravity pulls us together with buzz 
Everything moving in fast pace
Life is simply a beautiful race 
Engraved in my heart this city I love 
Sunshine and diamonds and friends in my land. 


A land of beauty art and aspirations 
The most exciting place to take vacations.

Home Sweet Home Acrostic

Heartfelt hugs envelope the soul
Overjoyed reunion circles the mind
Magnetic pull welcomes to come home
Extraordinary warmth gives peace sublime

Satisfying joy uplifts once again
Worthy memories escape the gray
Enticing thoughts circumvent the synapse
Entertains every emotion of love
Taste joy and see that it is good

Harmonious days filled the lives
Outstanding reminiscence in mind's eye
Mesmerizing cognizance lingers still
Ecstatic feelings felt at home sweet home

HOME SWEET HOME

Heaven is located behind my front door 
orchids of every colour adorn
my lounge; which is my horticultural haven
everywhere you look is blessed with their beauty

So many memories are behind these four 
walls where my son spent his childhood days
Everywhere I look there are reminders of him;
even though he has flown the nest
this is always going to be his home

How time has passed so quickly
o ur lives certainly have changed
My home is our special sanctuary
Every day on earth that we remain

Home of the Brave

Grit beneath my feet of strength 
Of Honor
Death within a win

To be awarded a metal 
In the eyes of sin
My heart is now purple
Ever bleeding red

Leading sorrow
Equally Loved
Nonsense of Pride
Developed in a wars crime

Heightened Ego
A man whom is not on the field
Never placing his hand on the trigger
Dapples on the grid

Smiling for your lose is his win
Tempered in a flag
Rising up a post
Overshadowing Death
Numbers in which Climb
Grief in a family's cry

Grit is a better word for Character
Rendering Star Spangled Banner
In God we Trust
The Home of the brave!

M easuring affection by the time and attention

Home Sweet Home

Hours of dreams about a home and belonging
Occupied my tender childhood and teen years.
Military life brought yearly address change.
Everything new ahead made all behind sad.

Surely many grow up without learning change,
While my siblings and I knew nothing permanent.
Every move led me to wonder the meaning
Each change meant to the inner and outer me,
Tasking my heart to seek my belonging place.

Halls, floors, ceilings and walls, a structure I sought,
Obscured a truth that would later sit with me;
My family’s presence is my one, true hearth,
Each member foundation for our sweet, sweet, home.

California, I Love You


Crowning my state is a jewel in the bay
A prized Golden Gate, is my bridge to the sky
Life on the edge of a vast ocean wave
I'll love California, until the day that I die
For, this has been home since the day I was born
On her glorious coastline,  my soul is restored
Redwoods so tall, where the eagles can soar
Not to mention Sequoia's and Yosemite's lore
I have it all, just a step out my door 
A land rich with gold, Mickey Mouse, and the shore!

I love you California, land of plenty, land of many
Land of vast cities, tall mountains, small valleys
Over the years, I have seen other lands
Varied they are, but I do understand
Even though wonders are seen everywhere,
You have them all and cannot be compared

Only your sun makes me feel wild and free 
Until your next earthquake, shakes things up, even me !!

Home Sweet Home

Home is where your heart resides
Obliging to everyone’s needs
Memories that are made and
Embarrassed with spiritual growth

Shared with sunshine smiles 
Warm hearts and hugs 
Echoing rooms of children screaming and fighting
Eager to play hide- and- go-seek or camp in a
Tent in the living room pretending their out in the woods

Home is a place where family’s dream of little 
Ones spreading their wings 
Motivated with enlightening love and 
Encouragement  a place to feel safe

Home Sweet Home

Happiness is not synonymous to contentment.
One’s life is happily excited.
Mine is well to be able to coexist.
Every day is part of a way of thinking.

Some people believe in an extended family.
We cannot live as a visceral.
Every day you hope that your spirit is fulfilled.
Everywhere existence unfolds.
Today is no different.

Heading out to where I gain the most comfort.
Often I miss there the most.
Maybe I will mention this to my significant other,
Else, I am bearing the course to my home sweet home.

Home Sweet Home

How delicious the feeling after long days
Occupying tedious roadways to find
Myself encompassed by congenial walls,
Enjoying the pleasure of harmonious spaces.

Soft pillows and bed enfold this
Weary body, quieting the inner wandering;
Each window winks a welcome, lights
Eagerly extend bright arms to hold me,
Tender guardians in a darkly changing world.

Hover over and around me, blessed quiet,
Only found where the sweet departed whisper
Memories of all that makes a place a home, where
Empty chairs, once theirs, embrace me warmly.

Home Sweet Home


How can I ever forget my childhood home of memories,
On a quiet tree-lined street, so peaceful and tranquil;
Mother had a huge tangled, wild garden that I loved,
Even now, still it grows, although the owner tames it.

Sadly, mother had to sell that house and leave it all,
With tears we walked away, we turned our backs;
Everything was fine, we had a nice condo in the sky,
Endless beautiful sweeping vistas from all windows, 
Then, mother got sick, real sick, and then she died.

Home for me now, is a wonderful Victorian apartment,
Oh, the floors are crooked, there are drafts, and groans;
My heart loved it in a moment, it just felt like home,
Everything about it is old and comfortable and so sweet.

Honey, I'm Home

"Honey, I'm home. I'd hear him call,
Opening wide the big front door.
Near or far, I'd run to him.
Eagerly greeting the one I adore.
"You're a bit early or a bit late."

I had faithfully watched the time.
My heart over-flowed when he called "I''m

Home from the daily grind."
Once more I'd welcome those words of his.
"My love, I'm home can I have a kiss?"
Each and every day those words I miss.
