Things worth coming home for...

Books arrived in the post.

A teapot, one's own.

Soup and toast.

The new red wallpaper, half forgotten.

Buttercups and sorrel in the verges.

Molly's place on the sofa.

The white azalea flowering.







(and you all, of course !)

Now that's a little verse I really enjoyed.

Lovely ambience and then some pictures to enjoy too.

Hope you enjoyed the break.

I didn't follow much and didn't know where you've been..but there's always no place like home!

The bed, always the bed, with the memory mattress, the reading lamps just so, the goose-feather pillows, and - when it rains - the plink-plonk on the metal heating vent just above us on the roof.

Welcome back to where it's cozy! I shall drink an Ale (or two) to your safe and sound return forthwith!

Coming home is always good, with a doggy-bag full of holiday memories. And photographs to look forward to.

Welcome Home

Sometimes flowers shriek
in white, or red, or yellow
and I've heard, colors
beyond violet
especially ecstatic
that we cannot see
but may sense other
ways in heart and soul, like I
sense you coming home.

Still, hope you had a good time...

Thanks for the lovely words, all spot on, and very much like it is.

Yes, a marvellous time, still scribbling and sifting photos!

Welcome home. This is just wonderful to read. I imagine myself coming home after a trip. Just to have a home to come home to, what a gift.

The Crow said...

You're home! Hurray! Looking forward to photos and lovely words about your trip. Bet Molly's glad to be home, too!

:)

Lovely spring.

For me, it's always my own pillow, and a way to make my own tea.

What a stunning azalea! (Does it seem like they are particularly nice this year? JAPRA and I were just saying.)

I'm glad you are back; and isn't it wonderful to be reunited with home comforts?

Welcome home. I see I've got loads to catch up!
