Coming Home - A Magpie Tale

Welcome back, Tess. I have kept you safe in my thoughts as best I could.

Cue the Irish Uilleann Pipes:

Coming Home

I climbed to the top
of the sodden line of hills
in the fade of light,
in the last of day,
because I knew the flagstones
were on the ridgeline
still, as long ago.

One hill south past the wood gate
was the notch that held
our house and I hoped
your heart and our stone warmed bed-
as well, good lamb stew.

Each week, except for vacations to England and such, Tess Kincaid offers images of great beauty for writing prompts. I am fond of replying with my poetry as best I can. I am also fond of Tess. You can find the contributor list on her site. Click on this: Magpie Tales.

The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
