I thought it was
Brick and mortar
Walls and windows
Rooms and furnishings
That is a falsehood
It is your stance beside me
Vertical and horizontal
Your shouts and whispers
Frowns and winks
Your heart and soul
Where you are
There is my home
It’s Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub and tonight De Jackson (aka WhimsyGizmo) invites us to give it a wink at a Quadrille (a poem of exactly 44 words, not counting the title) and include one word. This week’s word: wink.
YES. Home is always in the people!
Nice last two lines.
home is a place the heart rests – frowns ans winks seemed contradictory to me
Yes a home is less the bricks and mortar, it’s who it’s shared with.
Oh yes definitely ❤️ Home is where our loved ones are 🙂
Home is people, always. Love this.
I love this, darlin’. Really, really love it.
Hi Raivenne! I enjoyed reading your poem here, it was well written… interesting perspective on love… 🙂

I totally agree. I like your unexpected use of vertical and horizontal.
