There and Back Again

It’s lovely to travel,
(so hot in Spain,
cooler in France)
but yes, it’s lovely
to be home again.

Reality

Home from sunny Spain,
back to reality –
and rain!

January Joy 25

Up, up and away;
daughter flying home today.
Joy that she came,
but sad now she’s gone.
Won’t see her again until May.

January Joy 5

Home,
an oasis of calm
surrounded by protective trees
guarding my peace from traffic noise.

Loom as Home

My feelings exactly!

On the Boat

Arrived on the boat today
for a few days away,
knowing and fretting that back at home
my weaving isn’t progressing.

Not Time

Home again to find
all the wind-up clocks have stopped
but not time;
summer’s bloom now dulling,
autumnal airs creep up behind.

Drop-Off

Early morning drop-off at the airport;
our son lands in Germany
before we reach home.

Driving Home

Driving home past fields
of lingering snow and frost-iced trees;
a Winter Wonderland.

Again

Home again;
the grass has grown again,
the weeds are rife again,
I need to take control…
again!
