Finding Home

Ah, it's up. Go see! One of my poems is over at Qarrtsiluni as part of the theme Finding Home. The poem goes by the same name.

My thanks to stellar editors Lorianne DiSabato and Tom Montag, who proved marvelous to work with.

My thanks also to those who commented when the first draft of that poem appeared here briefly, a while back.

Congratulations! While I haven't been reading you for that long, "Finding Home" became instantly one of my favourites. xo

The circle. Such a cliché for life, and yet, so fitting to this piece. From your childhood home, to your current home, to the home inside, you travel the different links all belonging to the same connecting chain.

I cannot tell you how much I found of myself in part III. 'Inhabitable' made me thing of all the places we call home.


I thoroughly enjoyed reading this.

I'm so reluctant to comment on poetry; it's such a personal thing, and is never read and understood with the perpsective of the writer. That said, I do want to tell you that your words are lovely, and that this piece particularly affected me.

Moira, I appreciate your comment. Thank you for letting me know. No, poetry is not like to be completely understood from the perspective of the writer, but I understand that. In fact, it interests me to see what others see in the poems, or what the poems find in them. I strive for a kind of accessibility that (I hope) allows a reader to wear the poem in their own fashion.
