Home Away from Home

“Did he come to pray?

Did he come to rest?

Does he come every day?

Is he on a quest?

Will he find what he’s looking for,

Here in this place?

Will he feel blest

At the end of his stay?

Is this his home,

Away from home?

Underneath the dome,

Does he find shelter

That otherwise doesn’t exist?

His life is a welter,

Some might insist,

But the head of this house,

Welcomes him in His midst,

And finds him not to be a louse,

But a man who needs,

A heavenly kiss.”

  2. Robyn, your talents amaze and inspire me. Your photograph captured an essence that was also beautifully expressed by your words.
    I felt a poignant combination of loneliness, solitude and solace.
