There Is No Place Like Home

Rating: 3.4

Home is where your heart lies
even if it is not a palace of
glittering golden staircase
bronzed with the ivory of
the banner inwhich you hold

Time can take away from us
a part of life inwhich we all
once knew, but it never can really
erase the memory of where we

called our home

Such a warm and tender poem Bonnie written with such feeling. A most beautiful piece of work. There really is no place like home. Love, Andrew xx

Sentiments of nostalgia and tenderness flood this poem and must be shared by everyone who reads this beautiful poem. It's too easy to spend one's life searching for an illusive 'other' that doesn't exist. Better to look over one's shoulder and remind oneself of family and roots. An honest and very readable poem. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Bonnie! home is where the heart is! i believe that's true but can only speak as one so poor, maybe just like you! 'things of no monetary value, were held in high esteem and a visit to the beach, was sometimes but a dream bless you Bonnie, a wonderful poem

This is a gem of a poem Bonnie and you have powerfully blended emotion throughout this impressive piece. I loved your metaphor of nature and walls of beauty to compare to walls of our hearts. It connects the stanzas where it appears so well. Home is a haven for the heart and you have stolen my heart with this beautiful poem. 10 love Karin
