Home is

Home is a house, is a meal, is a stone
is a cat, is a man, is a fossilized bone.
Home is a lamp, or the look in an eye.
Home is hope and the freedom to cry.

Home is a mother, a poet, a friend.
Home is the banks of a river’s bend.
Home is in books that whisper at night,
in poems and stories, in words that take flight.

Brenda Warren 2012
