At Home

At Home

A Poem by Chelsea
"

I always feel at home when by water, especially the ocean!

"

At Home

I smell the salty oceans

As my feet walk the path,

A path of golden sand

 

The sun hovers above,

The oceans’ crashing waves

As if strung on a clay diorama

 

My toes wiggle in the hot sand

Water laps my steaming toes

Cleansing them

 

A seagull cries

I watch the streak of beauty

Silhouetted by the setting sun

 

My heart

Intoxicated with the ocean

The place I call home.

I have to say it is a sweet thing to notice the little things that make a house a home
the sounds sights and smells that say to us we are home.though many dont know a home as beautiful as you describe.We all remember the dent in the wall the marks of each our height left by mothers and fathers as we grew.Home is as much a place in the mind as in the heart.

Reading these lines soothens my mind. I can imagine how peaceful it must be there. If nobody knows where this place is yet, then this poem definitely puts it on the map! Great work Chelsea. I really like the simple and pure style of writing.

I love this. I remember growing up by the ocean, it was beautiful. This reminding me of all the summers I spent by the beach. I always feel better near open waters. It's so refreshing. Anyway, great write. Keep up the good work. :)

It's a lovely piece. The last verse is particularly intense to me. Beautiful indeed.

What a nice write; it brings to mind the mountains for me, because my home wouldn't be the same without the view of them outside my front door...

Great Write!

This poem really gave me a boost on this miserable winter day.
This mental vacation was beautiful and enchanting.
You Rawk.
