come home to harbor

Lillian is serving up quadrilles at the dVerse poets pub tonight!


may home be calm harbor

where load is lighter, not harder

welcome all with warmest ardor

share from heart’s generous larder

offer love a safe haven to anchor

retreat from world’s loud rancor

into shelter of peaceful arbor

make our home a restful harbor

    All homes should be that calm harbor where we feel safe and secure. Love this, Lynn. xo

    “Make our home a resful harbor.” I do believe you could market that line….it’s a keeper! A prayer – a way to live – a way to bring up our children so they know they are always welcome and loved. Beautiful!

    Your rhymes are delightful — home being a calm harbour is a resonant thought. I really liked how positive and uplifting your verse is.

    I like the ‘or/er’ sounds that echo at and punctuate the end of each line, emphasising the peace and comfort of home.

    beautiful rhymes and a beautiful wish – all homes no matter big or small should give us this feeling

    Very interesting take on the prompt. I agree home is the place to find a harbor for all. I liked the end word rhymes…. a neat idea!

    Love the end-rhymes and ending line is a prayer: make our home a restful harbor
