#18 NaPoWriMo, Home…

Hello my lovely friends. Today’s challenge is to write about the sounds of home. Enjoy.

Home

Home is my ear
Against your crest
Smiling.
Making a song of your heart beat.

Home is meaning it
When we say
“I will never leave you
Alone in the dark.”

Home is our voices
Whispering in each ear
Just how much we
Love the other.

Home is little feet
Racing by
On grand adventures
Or —
Just getting back
At that sibling.

Home is hearing
only the truth
from your lips.

Home is the sea,
Her tide.
The birds
And singing hand in hand.

Home is a melody of giggles
T E A R S
And sunshine.

Home is my dads car
Door shutting
And racing to be
The first one to
H U G
him.

Home is not the sound
Of a town.

Home is the sounds
Of the
P E O P L E
I love.

Home is waking to
My sisters
Brothers
And parents
Snoring.
A new midnight song
For my ears alone.

Home is water flowing
Dishes being washed,
Laundry going.
And a very old
Loud piano.

Home is a treasured song
To my melodious ears.
A harmonious song
Only few know the words to.
And I know
T H E M
All by heart.

I hope you are having a wonderful Monday. Keep smiling, awesome sauce!

Allie ❤

    You and I had similar thoughts when it came to “home”. I too associate home with memories and people I love. Such a lovely poem about your home 🙂

    P.S. That Dory quote is the icing on top!
