Dwelling of Affection

this home

its bones honed

over time with

warmth in each

niche and corner

filled with affectionate

recollections in

each step taken

whether trod or

in thought

a haven over

our head or

sentiments of security

in our psyches

a home filled

with adoration

and heart

becomes one

with life

  2. this is perfect, how I feel the comfort of my home and my heart too. I started 2017 with a word – HOME -i will revisit that word again at year end, your poem says a lot of which I will also write about. thank you for this wonderful poem Eugenia, your home is your heart and it is such a warm welcoming place to me when I read your words.

    • Thank you, Gina, and I’m delighted you enjoyed my poem. I felt this poem while writing it because I’ve been uprooted many times during my life and appreciate the feeling of HOME. The old proverb “home is where the heart is” makes sense to me.

  4. The scene you describe is so perfect- it becomes more of wishful thinking than inducing nostalgia. Beautiful from the beginning to end….
