I seek to return

return-flight-3068_640

Every year I leave you
For weekends
Or maybe, a week or two

I fancy a change,
An escape
To recharge batteries few

I miss you,
My home
The comfortably familiar you

But I appreciate you
Much more
When I finally return

    That was short and sweet, and yet so powerful 🙂 Yes, home is truly where the heart is !

    Everyone needs a little break once in awhile. Like the rhythm of this!

    Something about that line “the comfortably familiar you” in conjunction with some of the wording in the rest of your lines somehow personifies your ‘home’ and I really like that quality in your post 🙂

      Thanks CC — I was going for that and I’m glad it came across 🙂

    I like the form you’ve created and the subtle rhyming. I also loved “The comfortably familiar you.”

    We all want to get away, it seems.
