Home

4 walls and a door
Don’t forget the floor
That is the place I live
And not my home

Home is where the heart is
And lives
unequivocally enshrines the self
with a warm sense of belonging

No foreboding or fear
Can reach me here.
I am child once again
In this humble abode.


Raucous waves ~~
Sticky sand which won’t leave my slippers
The fresh smell of salt in the sea 
All welcome me home
How can I resist?

Filter coffee
Happy dog
Loving Grandma
That’s what makes my home
What makes yours?


If you don’t know ,
Go search, seek , build !!
If you do know ,
Visit it more often.
Treasure the warmth it gives you
Even if you live there all the time.
Especially If you live there ‘all’ the time.

  1. Home is where the heart is

    And the doggie knows this. It can take full use right up to one's bed if access is allowed.

  6. I like the way you start with the place where you live, which is not your home, and then move on to where your heart is. - the place where you grew up. I also enjoyed the sight, sound and feel of the place , which then lead to the person who makes your home.

  9. Happy to know home is where the heart is. So too the art, but it takes longer getting there. Saying just how the home is the heart. There's a welcoming mat at the door of this!
