Home – a definition

The centre of my web
the hub of everything
where friends can come
in peace for chat and food
laughter and welcome,
and then, thank God, to leave.
The place to let it all hang out –
comfort zone’s a cliché
but that’s what I call home.


There is no French word for home – chez  vous doesn’t count for me.  Mistress Quickly’s prompt yesterday was for a definition, and she pinpointed home.

  3. You crack me up…this definitely resonates with me,

    “friends can come
    in peace for chat and food
    laughter and welcome,
    and then, thank God, to leave.”

    I’m a very social – anti-social!! 😉

    It’s the only time I do any housework!
    I never thought about there being no word for ‘home’ in French – there’s probably some sort of deep-seated, cultural reason for it but it does seem a shame.

  5. I like your definition. I’m making my first home and it’s still having a struggle coming into being. Everyone that comes, wants to stay, forever…

  6. This so true. I love having people to visit, but I love it when they leave too!


I love it when you leave a Reply
