Home is where the heart is

I stayed with my eldest son yesterday in his rented flat in Wilsden Green and he and his girlfriend were talking about buying a place and where to live, which inspired me to write this poem. The photo is of him yesterday in the front of his home with a great Monkey Puzzle Tree behind him

Home is where the Heart is…

Where you lay your hat is your home

They say

It’s very true I have to say

No matter how big that mansion

Does that place fill you with passion

A small shack can be quite cozy too

It could be just the place for you

No grandeur to display

But if the one you love is beside you

And your life filled with pleasure day by day

It does not matter where you live

It’s what your heart has to give

And what you share

And fulfill your life

Through happiness and strife

Four walls can be a prision

Four walls could be your haven

It’s up to you for sure

To open up that door

And make it work for you

It is what you say and do

So happiness where is it found?

In this home that we abound?

Or is it within ourselves?

I think it is

Do don’t blame those walls

Or get in a ‘tis

Find a place to call your home

And you will never be alone

I became interested in poetry about a year ago and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at https://rosypoems.com
