Poetry Sunday: Dear Home


Dear Home



Dear Home:


My hearth-my center-my solace!

I come to you for peace, quiet and solitude.

I come to you for centering.

A feeling of belonging where I find shelter.

And while I surround myself with colors and precious things,

Where love is, that is all I need to be completely at HOME!

I am bringing you another epistolary poem from a letter I wrote in April of 2016.  This one was a homage to my home and hearth….where I live and where I find solace.  Both my house and garden were the main inspiration, but it seems the poem, as it developed, is also about finding my inner core as My Home.


I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog.

  1. Home has two meanings for me. Home, the belonging place, where I grew up is very special in memory. Otherwise, home is where I reside with people and things I love about me. Your words are wise!

  2. Your words are honest and true Donna and mirror my thoughts about my home and the solace it brings. A home is only a home if it contains our heart.

  3. I love this – particularly the way that you have taken the piece further, to your inner core. And thus, I think, the home becomes the sanctuary where – in peace and solitude -one can achieve that level of introspection. Lovely writing ~ sigh ~

  4. Love your art work. Home for me is foremost a sanctuary. My little world filled with memories and dreams. It is transportable and about the only thing in life I can have some control over apart from my own behaviour and thoughts.Enjoyed your poem.
