Home, a poem written by Zia Marshall at Spillwords.com



written by: Zia Marshall


Where masks fly off
Literally and figuratively
And you kick off your shoes
Sliding into authenticity

Cups of coziness
In freshly brewed coffee
Dipping into well-thumbed books aplenty
While the Muse visits you on wings of poesy

Lazy evenings on your little porch
A cool drink…watching the flaming torch
Dipping behind the shady canopy
Making way for the twinkling panoply

Pouring over long-forgotten recipes
‘Ah remember the time we used to make these’
Jostling for space in the tiny kitchen
Measuring, mixing, baking in shared unison

Your special corner marked by seclusion
In your little world, you brook no intrusion
Settling into introspection, rumination
Till charming black-winged visitor coos a greeting
