Sonnet #5

Home is more than a place to hang our hat.

Cool or warm shelter from the outside storms.

Evenings near the fireplace for a lively chat

Laughter celebrations, memory forms.


Throbbing the kitchen is the heart of home.

Preparing and sharing party food over years.

Traveling to near and far places, we roam.

Sleeping in our own beds without fears, tears.


Home is warm and fuzzy, where feelings thrive.

A sweet spot, where we can be selves and relax.

Refuge from work or the workplace, we strive.

Habitation throughout thick and thin, perhaps.


When done, location that you want to go.

Your address is better than a chateau.
