An Ode. October

Updated on February 19, 2012
I see you too.  :]
I see you too. :]

Just another poem :)

Home.
The word that melts hearts.
I trail my fingertips
up and down your back
over the goosebumps
on your side.

The window is open.
October breath drifts in
and rubs our uncovered legs.

The constant question hovers
outside-directed by an owl
A cricket chorus lulls
my eyes to a close.

Will I still feel like this
Tomorrow?

Home?

      Thanks again donna! :) I'm glad you have that wonderful feeling of what 'home' is too. It is a place you can be as weird, angry, ridiculous, upset, or as happy as you want and you don't have to worry about anyone judging you. That's the greatest sanction of the home for me.

      Really nice piece Poet. Great imagery and flow... I am very impressed with your talent.. I am sure when your name is called from high hills on October breezes... it will be heard in places that you can not yet imagine. Nice to meet your words today... in February. Take care.

      Larael, when we are home, there is not doubt we are there. Home is where we are accepted, respected, appreciated in spite of ourselves. Home really is where we must feel safe and unwind without any fear or guilt. Thanks.

      Home is such a powerful word, its essence is something I've longed for the majority of my adult life. Haunting beauty in the piece.
