1. This made me smile. I could relate to this in the sense that just a couple months ago, we moved out of our home we’d lived in for over sixteen years (and moved to a different town!) I also think of how we’re going on vacation soon and I’ll be so ready to come back to my new home. Suitcase living in hotels is not for me πŸ™‚

    1. After 20 years of constant business travels and living in hotel rooms and out of suitcases – the most beautiful part of any business trip for me – when I returned to see the smiles on the faces of Lisa and the children.

      Since the day I married, I might have paid the bills but Lisa is the one who gave me a home πŸ™‚

  2. Houses, lived in many that are not home.
    Wings on my feet always return me to this place,
    Even without a roof over my head,
    Smells like home and winds through my heart;

    Loved yours Eric. Home beckons indeed.

    1. This is marvellous, Val

      Yes, a house need not be home
      A home need not be a man-made structure

      I love the magic in your short poem.

      Luv and blessings on a Sunday morning,

    1. Thank you, Lauren

      Going home on a never ending journey
      Perhaps, we are already home

      What a thought – much to reflect. Thank you for this.


  3. Whenever I travel I am always ready to go home, but I’m certainly not ready for an ultimate β€œhome” – too many more memories to accumulate and my suitcase is expandable. Cheerio, Jane

  4. Harsh words fly, closed ears repel screams
    Neighbours watch the unholy scene
    Never darken my doorstep again, words cut
    Doors slam wham, bam cut!

    Just love your haiku.

    1. This is simply marvellous, Willow dear πŸ™‚

      Thank you so very much for sharing this here.

      Sadly, the theme of your poem is enacted much too often in many lives.

      Thank you. Much luv and blessings coming your way,

      1. Yes for now they are behaving. But that will change as soon as the winds change. They do have their moments.

      1. For a chronic sufferer, it is not a good or very welcomed wish dear. but thanks for the thought.

  5. on the way but who can tell when the journey will end when its time to pack up and leave..oh no I have so much more to do..so many memories to caress

    1. Hello Soma,

      You’ve been missed πŸ™‚

      Same here – I’m busy filling up a room full of stuff to be bagged – always believe in travelling heavy.


      1. Thanks, yeah the haiku’s really haven’t been coming so great lately. I should post some of them though, just for comic relief. Gotta love those times when things don’t come out the way you want them too. But, it is nice to put some longer verses together as well. Thanks again

I like to hear your thoughts
