  1. This made me think of “Goin’ Home”, the spiritual to the tune of the second movement of Dvorak’s New World Symphony. I can’t be sure, though, whether or not you intended that meaning of “going home”.

    • I had to Google Dvorak to know what you were talking about. Beautiful piece, I have heard it before, just didn’t remember the origin. I believe I heard Botticelli sing it. No, I was not thinking of that final ‘going home’. This home was more earthly based. Thanks Bob.

    • As a single person it’s one thing, but once there’s children especially – I can see that happening. As Claudia noted, it is a powerful force.

  2. Very careful construction throughout and yet it never shows through. Your piece is infused with music, imagery and beauty. It doesn’t show its form nor does it seem like free verse – it sounds like truth and yearning from your heart.

    • Why thank you Gay. Having just read your entry a few minutes ago, I do understand it does not feel like a form, and yet there is definite structure. I’m glad it sounds like truth for those rolling hills are strictly imagination to this city gal.

  3. Only cause I saw it last night on youtube Phylicia Rashad reading a poem from her mom has the same vibe of going home. called ‘on status’, very poignant and powerful.

  4. I like the concluding lines, its time to go home ~ Well done with the form, specially the third stanza, my favourite ~ Have a good weekend ~

So? What do you think?
