Home is a Thought

Home is our Spirit


I saw a family loading their goods on a truck. The flat they

lived in and called their home was slowly turning into as

a solitary place. As soon as they vacated it all and shifted

to some other place, the flat looked forlorn and lost all charm

as a home. I wondered if the home was in their spirit, mind

and heart. Where did the home disappear ? This hub is

about wonder that arose in my mind on that day.

We can't wander in places,so, we think of a residence,

Where we can live and laugh,we all really want a home !


Land and flats we purchase, can we really buy a home ?

We spend bundles of dollar, to build a house of our own.


Do we ever ask for a home ? we always search a house,

Land to own or an apartment, to stay sometime on a rent.


But home comes afterward, as an angel in our dreams,

Like a body house wakes up, we get pivoted firm as soul.


We shake it up with laughter, and merrily endear ourselves ,

Fill it with our voice and smile, we turn it into as our home.


It was a stony lifeless house, we pumped its heart with love,

And opened its mind with care, how it babbled so incessant.


Home is reflection in the mirror, what we think, do and imagine ,

When we do vacate it for good, how it turns again into a house !


Home is a creation of our mind ,It is a feeling and a nice thought !

Home doesn't exist as a place ,like a spirit it just dawns there !


It is our smile, it is our laugh, it is sweet whispers and warm hugs !

Privy to all what we are, like a mirror it reflects and loves all moves !


It knows our wisdom and follies, it knows our falls and also all rises ,

Like a true friend, it keeps secrets and opens gates for welcomes !


Home is in the wind, home is in the light and in the breath we live,

It is in our mind and in the heart, it is love and all bliss in the souls !

      Yes home is where it feels like home, for everyone of us. Home is not just a place, it is what we make a home. Great poem, as always.

      A house or an apartment is a roof over our head. Our home is within us and it stays with us. Good point Harishprasad. Voted up, shared and Pinned.

      So nicely differentiated between a house and a home by you. Home is to house what soul is to us. We can't see the soul but it is a thought. In the same way, I tried to think of home as an abstract concept. Kevin, thanks for your kind visit to this hub appreciating the poem and sharing it.

      The famous saying "Home is where the heart is" is appropriate here Harishprasad. A 'house', "apartment' or 'flat' is just bricks and motar, but a "home" is is as The Examiner says "within us and stays with us" wherever we choose to make it. Good poem, voted up.

      Your feedback takes the concept of home further when you say that home is wherever we choose to make it. It means that we can make any place as our home and not only our residence. Great comments, John. Thanks a lot for your kind visit and for your beautiful comments.

      Wonderful work here. I really loved it when a boat was my home. Of course I love to back country hike so I have had some great homes while on the trail. As a parent it is tough to make the distinction for our children. Physical feelings of security seem like such a good idea, but truly what we must show is that we must be secure in ourselves and not a place.

      So kind of you to have visited this hub and given a nice feedback on it. You are right, any place we stay at can be a home for us for that particular period. It means home is like a feeling that we carry with us and wherever we go it follows us. Yes, we must be secure in ourselves and not a place ,so true ! Very insightful comment ! Thank you Eric for appreciating this stuff and your kind comments.
