A Poem by roarke
"

prose about home

"

Tall stretching conifers bid silence below, amongst their trunks

Listening heals, rests the mind and balms emotion


There’s no wind, no cold today

A walk in the forest coaxes full breath

Tired limbs and dormant muscles remember random motion


A place, a home, solitude

Here is what we make of it, bright lucidity


A fire crackles and smoke curls

Cats and dogs abide

Peace, love, home.

Some one told me if I didn't write poetry, I could get kicked off WC...naw.
Conversely, if I DO write poetry, I can get kicked off WC.... sounds about right. Critiques and comments welcome.

I figure this to be an image poem where I am shown one man's paradise. Now, I'm not told it's paradise,; I'm shown. I like that, but I 'd like it more if some other sense, beside sight, was experienced, now I did hear the fire crackle, granted, but what does the paradise feel like, how does it smell, surely paradise is not unscented?

This poem could describe my own home, a cabin in the wilderness with two dogs. I love how the aspects being appreciated have nothing to do with what money can buy or what outsiders can see/judge. Your poem shows that "home" is the heart of a habitat (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I enjoyed the poem my friend and you are welcome.
Harmony rules this poem. It is rich and full of peaceful images that layer the sitting in reverse, from outside to in. A day at peace with itself and you wrangle it to paper.

just like home is where the heart is..."here is what we make of it"
and we can make it comfy...we don't need much, just some love and understanding.
And I , for one, am so glad to read some poetry by you.
You do it quite well, I think. I was there with your imagery...and i myself remember random motion and emotion.

The use of language is normal; nothing out of the ordinary. While the message can be confusing at moments, it's good too. The message itself is simple. It's a great kickstart into poetry
