If home is not here
Where is it
If death brings us home
Then where are we when alive
If home is not here
Life means we are not at home
This makes no sense to me
None have returned with tales of home
None have come back once they are gone
Our home is here
Our work is here
Home building and home repair is here
We have one chance for home for home is here

    Is death home? Is life home? Your poem gives one a choice as Rober Frost says the road chosen makes the difference.Poets muse over questions...some give answers, some accept others answers, still others leave questions to each's answer/truth. Great poem that gives one to ponder. (Report) Reply

With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
