Home

It’s has been a very eventful and hectic time, and as a result, I have not posted anything for perhaps two to three weeks. My apologies for the silence. Perhaps you will find the following poem an enjoyable read. I wrote it a while back for the Malaysian Writers FB group poetry challenge, which happens every Wednesday. The prompt word was ‘home’, and it made me think of what I defined as my home.

Flower Dome, Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

HOME

Home is where the heart is
It is with me; wherever I go
Home is not a turtle’s shell
It does not require moving
Home is not a nest of grass
It does not require building
Home is not filled with objects
It does not require warehousing
Home is a feeling
It comes from within
A feeling of comfort
A sense of belonging
Where I am
I take home with me
