FOR THE MIDDLE OF THE MONTH POETRY CHALLENGE COLLEEN CHESEBRO WANTS US TO TRY SOMETHING NEW – A PHOTO PROMPT!

**USE THE ABOVE PHOTO AS THE INSPIRATION FOR YOUR POEM. ASK YOURSELF QUESTIONS AND TELL A STORY. BE CREATIVE! WHAT DOES THIS PHOTO SAY TO YOU?

 

“Where is home? Home is where the heart can laugh without shyness. Home is where the heart’s tears can dry at their own pace.”

~Vernon Baker

 

 

Home Is Where We Love

Beyond the black door

there are rooms and furniture

tastefully arranged

A home built with love and dreams

The sweetest sort of heaven

 

“There is a magic in that little world, home; it is a mystic circle that surrounds comforts and virtues never known beyond its hallowed limits.”

~Robert Southey

    I love that Tanka Vashti.The word home conjures different thoughts for everyone. Mine are…
    Home is that cushions lonely moments, provides solace to disappointments, gives shape to desires and inspires to aspire high. Have a lovely weekend.
