Homecoming Haynaku

Shoes off
Cup of tea



That’s a nice little house,
shall we buy it?
says Jock every time
as we round the bend
and spy it. 

 Abrah at dVerse wants a homecoming poem.  I wrote a long spiel last night about coming home to France after two years in Seychelles, but wasn’t pleased with it, so left it unposted for another look in the light of day.  I hit the delete button the moment I read it again this morning!  
Hence these two little ones written in minutes!

    Would be interested in reading your return-rant one day. Grew up in Seattle, then lived in CA for A decade; returning to my “hometown”, I found only ghosts, empty lots, & jacked up property values. It is so crowded, so dense, so dark, I can hardly bear even visiting there these days.

    I love that Jock. When i take John’s mother shopping we always drive in her car, so mine is left in her drive. And every time EVERY TIME we come around the corner on our way home she says. “Oh Look I’ve got company!” And then laughs like it is the first time she ever said it! ..c

    shoes off
    for sure.

    ha. no, we already have a house
    and selling the first would be so much work.
    but keep dreaming.
