"Home”

a branch from a strong tree   
grafted to another tree   
entwined and interlocked   
growing new   

a child’s mischievous grin   
before he puts a bean up his nose   
a cuddle on the couch   
calling softly   
Love you to eternity   

tasting life in all its flavors   
the spice of banter   
the bitterness of loss   
a sweet ecstasy    
of togetherness   

two hands clasped together   
heads bent over an open book   
laughter at private jokes   
whispering softly   
in yellow haloes of light
