The fox was rumbled,
ground moved from under his feet,
he's looking for home!
Coming back from hospital in the dark
we were confronted by a fox
on our bridge in the headlights.
This is unusual for they usually stay in the woods
a good way behind the house,
now a new landscape is being formed
making way for the pond
his habitat has been disturbed.
What does home mean to you?
I think of Joe Spadoman returning
home from hospital, how comforting
home must feel for him today!
Recently my married son said of home:
"home is wherever Karen and Isla (dog) are,
whether that's at my house
or in the back of my camper van".
This was lovely to hear
from my youngest son,
baby of the family now a man
honouring his wife in this way!
Then there is the 'home' we have
made here on-line, it feels just like going home
returning week upon week
to the familiar to say hello to everyone,
knowing it is a place to just be,
a place of acceptance and love.
They say 'home is where the heart is',
I must say there is plenty of heart here!
