a inlet, an island, a cave

Home is a place to be

ones own

the caricuture of future plannings

and too busy days falls

into an abyss

as the doorway

opens into the dwelling of ones own peace

By Rowan Heuvel on Unsplash

A shelter

A sanctity

A private space

Only known and seen by loved ones


By Nick Fewings on Unsplash

What is sent from home is chosen

By the occupant

No need to front

I won’t engage in debate

Over heated controversy

That had no place

In the dwelling of my own personal space.

By Robert Wiedemann on Unsplash


And dancing so hard

It’s rattling bones

Stirring ghosts

A quirk

By Taylor Sondgeroth on Unsplash

A morbid twist

A phone call

A Hopeful


And a teasing saint

By Steve Johnson on Unsplash

Blaring on the tv

as the mute button

is never found soon enough.
