Coming Home

Coming Back Home Called home my nomadic heart yearns to unpack scattered shadows, Ornaments of blue Orion winds and souvenirs of summer place passions, Mirrors found in attic reflections - refraction's hallmarks of nostalgia, Image mirages of battered milestones shed like outgrown skin - Nests of hidden pleas and prayers in locked trunks as abandoned minutes - Garlands of tangled seasons and dried bouquets. Home awaiting unspoken future days when trying on again Outgrown masks of jeopardy discarded - crannies of warm hearths - Making room for nascent triumphs to tickle laughter no longer stooping Even as my nomad heart wanders only to return in magic primal circles. 4-12-21 N/A Contest: Acrostic 10-12 Lines- 4-16-21

Thank you so much Greg! Writing this was like finding hidden treasures in an attic, or in this case my grandmother's basement, undisturbed for a long time - all those hidden things revealed with a resolution of many of them. So glad you saw the triumph in the last lines! Many thanks!
