My Home Is My Haven Haiku Poem by Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black

The log cabin in

the hinterland's golden trees

hunter's paradise

Fishing on the lake

dragonflies mosquitoes bite

giant catfish jump

A place to think, dwell

upon life's reflections in

a wooden cabin

Waldon's pond I think

there should be more quiet places

for hibernation

Among golden leaves

and marshland pines a legend

haunts: Jersey Devil

Nestled among trees

ripe with fruit and golden boughs

my abode-heaven

Little forest hut

just right for austere pleasures


Lak eside view palace

gazebo for parties and

old trees to swing on

A tent in the wind

lifted, traveled, unanchored

nomadic feet dance

Ancient ruins from past

civilizations recalls

lives wind blown away

I'm homeward bound to

the hills of my ancestors'

nestled mountain town

No matter where I

roam home is in my heart loved

by me forever

No matter where I

dwell home sweet home is in me

until my soul leaves
