Josephine Adrian

(September 21,1986 / Victoria, BC)

Home is...

Home is...
Hugs and laughter;
But not everything,
Is happily ever after.

Home is...
Surrounded with love,
It will never run out,
There is always enough.

Home is...
Shelter from the rain,
Even if it feels like
Everyone is going insane.

Home is...
Memories and sorrows;
But never to forget,
Our possible tomorrows.

Home is...
Pain and tears;
A place we can go,
To face our fears.

Home is...
Daisies and butterflies,
With just the right mixture,
Of the foolish and the wise.

Home is...
Welcoming and warm,
Out in the open,
On a fourty acre farm.

    Home sweet home,
    Home is where the heart is.

    I do very much like the quaint image portrayed, rather good indeed. Some of have unfortunetly not had this image of home to enjoy, they have had their own to 'endure'.

    This is a rather nice piece indeed. Well done.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
