Sense of Place

Sense of Place

A Poem by Honestly, Abe

My home is a stone bowl filled with blankets
That I snuggle into when I’m alone, and home
And smuggle my favorite things, too: crayons
The Phantom Tollbooth and a pink glass elephant
That I bought on a whim at an outdoor market,
Candles that smell like camping and strong coffee and
A pillow or two, feather, like I like when I’ve had a long day

When after kept promises I can barely crawl
Back into my bowl, and snuggle into blankets
Holding tightly to feather pillows and Tollbooth
Pressing my hot face against soft cool stone

How very creative this is. Sometimes home can be simple and sometimes simple is perfect. An excellent write!
