Who/What/Where is Home?
By Jennifer Gann

"Home is where the heart is"
Or sso the saying goes
My mother, sister and Nana
and the sweet smell of a rose.

Home is Mother Nature
the Goddess of the Earth
and all here lovely children
burning fires in the hearth.

Home is where I'm safe
to lay my head and sleep
to dream of a better world
where love and devotion are deep.

I find my home in a lovers arms
whoever s/he may be
Or in the presence of my Guru
as i worship at Her feet.

Who/What/Where is home?
It's Amazonian sisterhood,
it's ancient ancestrial homelands,
and the local neighborhood.

Who is home? The Goddess!
What is home? The Earth!
Where is home? It's here and now
as i end this verse!

Hi Jennifer,
it only took me 1 year and 10 months to reply, but thank you for your foto and I hope you're doing okay in those toxic political times.
Warm greetings,
Julia
