I call my apartment (my home) my nest, with this and that collections and beloved stuff displayed: Oh, when within my nest I am not stressed, where my art supplies, books and papers are arrayed; and it is a place where my soul- can rest. There is a beautiful kitty that waits, when I open the door I get meows, kisses and love: I dread the day heaven opens the gates, and kitty walks over rainbow bridge to above; so, amazing the special love- life creates. Often, I don't want to leave my nest home, so nice to listen to quiet music, to draw and write: In my home library I love to roam, with the sun shining in the windows it feels right; so I stop- selecting to read a vast tome. ______________________ October 11, 2022 Poetry/Quintain(Sicilian)Non IP/Home is My Beating Heart Copyright Protected, ID 10-1493-732-11 All Rights Reserved, 2022, Constance La France Written for the Premiere contest, Three Stanza Poem in Quintain (Sicilian) sponsor, L MILTON HANKINS, Judged 10/30/2022 Eighth Place

I love the little nest you have built where you find joy and comfort with only two inmates... you and your kitty cat. The house artfully laid with a library must be cosy ! A soothing poem dear Constance. I too love cats, but unfortunately my husband is averse to them. So gradully I have learnt to adapt to his interests and focus more on my garden.

Constance! A Fave! In imagery,heart, soul and flow…we could be sisters. To me, this reads classic elegance, accomplished choice of words, lyrical , not alarming rhymes. Thank you for this. Made my day. Don’t leave your nest for too long a time…GiGi (my pup) and I might sink in; she likes cats. BIG HUGS

There is something about afternoon sun coming through the windows on a fall or winter afternoon that is so wonderful. I enjoyed reading your contest entry. Reads like a good contender to me. Way to go. Thanks for sharing and for dropping by my blog. Sara

Kim, thank you so much for the visit, comment and compliment on my photography. Because my book cases are full, I am starting to pile my books up against walls too, but in a organized way only I understand, blessings Constance
