where do i belong
traveling on a journey
yearning for your face
quiet firelight
surrounding my evening chill
autumn belonging
folded in embrace
the circle of what matters
sighing depth of soul
miles of distance
merely separating touch
home, where the heart is

There are times when "touch, home and where the heart is" are a far, far country for my traveling husband. And yet, belonging. Thank you!

Very nice collection you've got here. I can relate being many miles from where I grew up. Thank you.

Each one is beautiful and speaks from and of the heart. Really lovely. I especially love the line "sighing depth of soul."

crafty...thank you...i like the warmth of autumn.

christine...when my husband hugs me i tell him i am in the circle of what matters & that is the inspiration for it...glad you have enjoyed.

glad...so very true! when i am in the right place, even far away...i still feel belonging.

zapped...i too am far from the first home, but still feel a belonging, both here & there.

sognatrice...i am sure, with your distance, you really *get* these.

clare...thank you! don't you just know you belong when it comes from the deep places!

I really like the third one.

It looks like the area around the ghetto in Rome...
