    Home is where the heart is
    Home is familiarity
    Home is where you comfort self
    Home is where you can BE
    Going home to thy higher self
    Such a wonder, who will I see
    Gender opposite is your reflection
    Anything outside of thee is supplementary
    All is not logic for logic does not feel
    Or be of stone, but even stone has its own frequencies
    Be Still and listen to who you be, you and your God self
    Go within and listen
    Go home to thee

    SeekingMaat, since this piece is more so a short poem than a haiku, it has been moved from the haiku forum to the Get Your Flow On forum.
    I enjoyed this. To know and appreciate self is imperative, well said.

    Dearest Sis Destee :luvv:

    Sometimes we go and visit friends and family. Their homes may not be decorated to our own personal tastes - maybe we dont like their choice of colour scheme or the furniture. It does not stop us from enjoying their company. Sometimes when we look around perhaps its only a 'table lamp' that we like and say that would look nice in our homes. Mentally we have already placed it in a position. Some homes are decorated so beautifully it makes us wonder about our own home. Sometimes when we look at our home we see the battered tired outworn and dated furniture - only fit for being thrown out. When we start to redecorate our homes, in our minds eye we already have a vision of what we want our homes to be. Decorate your home with your own eye and comfortability.

    Peace :hearts2:
