BANNER MOUNTAIN GIRL#28 “Red Daylilies”

RED DAYLILIES

The house is empty now
and no one tends
the flowers, growing still
along the walk where once
I strolled with Mama.

My hand in hers, she walked
with me and talked about
the blue hydrangeas,
Phlox of pink,
daylilies red, and
golden black-eyed Susans,
dazzling at their peak
of color
in the sun.

I walk along the
silent footpath now,
where only shadows move.
I miss Mama.

There’s No Place Like Home

 

When I’m away even for a day trip, it’s always great to return. Often on my way up the drive, I  say, “Be it ever so humble, there is no place like home!”

The road back home is sometimes too long and difficult to travel.

Home is someone drawing water from the well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Home is a place to be at Christmas. It’s a visit from the grandkids.

It’s a nostalgic place, a place for memories. A place for love.

No matter how far away your travels take you, there is no place as wonderful as home.
Home is being together, being happy, being free.

Home is the ending of the day, being thankful. Being grateful to God for all His many blessings.
