Where my love is found


Home? He laughed out loud
When they asked him where he'd go 
On his holiday

I feel more at ease
Walking on a lonely beach
Or in the forest green

Where the sea's whisper
Sings me a sweet lullaby
And soothes me to sleep

Fish nibbling my toes
There a crab waving a Hi!
And the broad blue sky

Breakers they'll applaud
At my visiting again
I know my heaven

The sand in my toes
The fresh salt wind in my eyes
With the scent of brine



Then there's the dark woods
With the tall whispering pines
I crave that feeling

Rustling of wild things
Now checking just who I am
Owls hoot the all clear

Creatures wander round
For they are not frightened of me
As insects buzz by

The stream ripples on
Little birds twitter and dive
Such place could I die

All my stress is gone
My happiness is found there
Of which do I dream

But you're right he said
I am going home once more
Where my love is found

  1. It is a blessing when one can be alone in the wilderness and feel completely at home.

  2. When the world feels like your home it is very special - i think it is a feeling inside - a belonging..wherever that maybe

  8. "Then there's the dark woods
    With the tall whispering pines
    I crave that feeling"....still now true peace and tranquility to be found here...home for souls weary of the noisy world...and i also echo Sherry's words....

  11. I loved this. Made me feel like going to my special place in the mountains of Taos, NM. I guess that's my second home, I feel loved there. Lovely writing Robin.

  17. I relate to every word in the second half of the poem. The forests are my favourite(st) haunts. "My happiness is found there", too.

    The writing is so very beautiful.
