HOME

Home like a poem
Whatever its chosen form
Should communicate
Life’s loveliness and meaning
Because it’s where your heart is.

The Bus Home

Lovers huddle close.
Rain smacks the dusty pavement.
Commuters bustle,
Seeking refuge in doorways.
Diesel fumes, cigarette smoke,
Intoxicate the bus queue.

My Weekend Home

High in the mountains
A log cabin in the trees
Aspens in color
Sit next to maples scarlet blaze
Hear the rippling river sing

Africa - Tanka contest

Sweet Home Eden.
Amidst widening desert.
Faint lions whisper:
"globes warming, rains rare."
Sweet Home Eden, for how long?

Home In The Oaks

.
                                        Large oaks drop acorns
                                       Delicious fall winter food
                                           Deer enjoy bounty

                                         Ginko radiant yellow
                             Those leaves helps deer's cognition

Coming Home--Sad

thanksgiving coming
he asks over and over
when will you be here
I will be ready to go
with a kiss I say "early"

since February
after his legs were removed
he has not been home
our son will be there to help
coming home for Thanksgiving

arriving early,
he is sleeping so soundly
not ready to go.
I cannot awaken him.
the nurse shakes her head sadly.

he won't be waking
how long will it be before
it could be a day or weeks
turkey cooking, guests coming
daughter comes to relieve me.

I phone everyone
all children and grandchildren
we all want to be there 
browned turkey comes out of oven
stuffing is his favorite

stirring the gravy
I hear telephone ringing
instantly I know
message brief and to the point
empty chair for evermore

Journey Home

Peace love and faith is what makes a soldier a man. Serve with heart and soul. Now it’s his time to come home with an eagle watching now.

Home of the Undead

Where is the birthplace Of the unholy and corrupt The place of the lost Where evil stems and harbors Final home of the undead

Lost Home

Wondering this world
Seeking a home for my body
I shall close my eyes
Just for a second.....  what sound
Trumpets playing for my wake

can't go home

Ruby red slipperr
will take you home,
but a house is not
a home, unless there is love.
so, i can't go home with those...

A secure home

he thought 
to build a secure home 
at the top of a hill
but never thought
a river flows under his feet
