Home- A Poem



The wind pulls up my hair

Twirling each strand in another direction,

Feels cold to the touch but is relaxing.

The old tree in the yard is still empty and barren

Impatient for its leaves to return, as am I.

And a chill crawls down my spine

There's an eerie vibe in the air.

Maybe it's that old creepy house down the road

Believed to be haunted.

But I smile none the less

Because there's no place like this

And rather I care to admit it or not

This is home.

The hand always prepared for a high five on the map

Or seems to be waving "hello".

It is so welcoming

That no matter where I am

Michigan will always be my home.

You have succeeded, my Beloved.

I am telling you in all sincerity that I commented, as above, without making the connection. The pictures are more vibrant, so full of Light!

I only remembered you because for some reason, one of your other poems came up. So now I'm back. I want to tell you, that I am very proud of you. Much peace.
