Vacation Replacement

Holiday season has begun

At someone else’s work place,

I’ll try to stun

Though home may be holiday place

@D

Homelessness

It’s dark before 5 pm

You can enter home

If only we could share it with them

That no longer, outdoors they roam

@D

Not A Home

A house without small decorations

Torn wall papers, necessities only

Betrays inhabitants’ situations

A house gives its own testimony

@D

Migration

Settling down isn’t difficult

Leaving behind, however, is the difficulty

You can leave your home town or country

In their leaving you, it may not result

@D

 

Vulnerable Lives

Living on their own isn’t easy

For those in bad health, or at old age

It has a price: Being free

Family in the house isn’t perse our cage

@D

Connected Homes

We are always connecting

With our neighbours, the city

Through the plumbing

But, the water travels freely

@D

Egypt

I hope to grow old

At this place on Earth

It’s a thought I hold

At my current hearth

@D

Nearly

Chores around my house

Are about to finish

The good this may rouse

Who can it not astonish

@D
