Fay Slimm

(Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

Coming Home.


Home is within the Self.
All voyage brings us there.
To be aware of welcome
We would have been sharing
Our love. Now departing
From distant shores we find
New ways toward the start
For home. Loth to leave behind
Adventure, yet singing
Of eternity, we find
Balance which joy in Self brings.
Homecoming then feels fine.

    Home is where your heart is, where little nick knacks dwell
    familiar things, a picture brings, mementoes cupboards swell
    its lovely to go on holiday, but towards the end
    you cannot wait to be back home, cos your home is like a friend (Report) Reply

poet Sara Teasdale

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"
by Sara Teasdale

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
Sands where he spoke my name;

Laughter and hearts so high
That the spirit flew off free,
