Home Fragments

A Poem by Susan Dale

(1)

My mother’s eyes
My father’s shroud
The breath of home

(2)

Behind curtains of darkness
The candles of truth burn
into time

(3)

Reaching out to find
to touch again
An ever-elusive phantom
Home

(4)

Colors escaping their forms
Floating free
Falling rosy-red
Into the heart

(5)

What has met
To cross my mind
Lingers long
Memories of home

(6)

Fingers of time
Pointing to the heavy scent
Of home

(7)

Pawprints across the night
Lead me to the
World of all things
Home

(8)

Looking back
With half-closed eyes
The smoke and mirrors
of remembering

(9)

Home
A place I search to find
In my mind

(10)

Walking the chalk lines
Of daybreak
Taking me home

(11)

Trickling down
Sometimes
Memories of home

(12)

In a world saturated with dreams
Carrying a song
Of forever
