A Home?

Ask me not 
It hurts me so often 
It’s not either a place or space 
Where I sleep
Not at all a street or school
Where I walk 
It’s there
Where my heart hovers and hovers 
Until its get hurt
It’s there 
Where I sleep so sound 
As if  I have no tomorrow 
It’s there 
Where I walk and talk 
As if I own every piece of land 
It’s there 
Only there in my dream
And I dream so often

  1. Aramaic Philosophy God created the Heavens…..the First Wheel God created Me in his image…..the Second Wheel God created the Earth….the Third Wheel
    Just a thought keep your feet planted on Earth and reach for the stars. Great poem.

  2. Beautiful. It put me in mind of “Inception”, where the group of people gather to dream.
    – “They come here to dream?”
    – “No, they come here to wake up. For them, the dream has become reality.”

  3. Hi Sonam, thanks for following my blog. I enjoy your poetry very much and hope you find your home, wherever that may be, and with it, all the happiness, peace and prosperity that you seek. Very warm regards.

  4. Beautiful, deep and heartbreaking words, all at the same time. You have bared your soul and your heart. I hear it. I feel the ache of longing.

    “Where I walk and talk
    As if I own every piece of land
    It’s there
    Only there in my dream
    And I dream so often”.

    These words stood out to me. It reminded me of part of Psalm 115, “The highest heavens belong to the Lord, but the earth belongs to mankind.” When I read the Psalm I learn that for those who fear the Lord God, are called his children. Children have an inheritance from their Father. All we have to do is believe he “is” and that he is the rewarder of those who seek him. (Hebrews 11) What he owns we walk on as if we were at home, because we are family, family of the Most High God. I love that you dare to dream. God put that in your heart Sonam. I see a heart that seeks justice in you.

  5. Beautiful. There can’t be a better home than nature for all of us who have come from there. This mortal frame is a licence to ambulation from otherwise static existence. Congrats

  6. Thank you for reminding of the benefits of home as I travel now on our long road trip. I hope you enjoy following my blog. USFMAN

    1. Thank you, I love reading traveler’s blog and that’s my way of traveling to different places. Travelers are cultural embassadors of the world. So, thank you for being one of them.

  7. The words and the image work so well together, as if one was born of the other. A beautiful poem, and a beautiful picture. Is the photo yours? I’m guessing Tibet with that landscape and fluttering prayer-flags

  8. A beautiful piece about how important a home is whether a dwelling in or outside our minds. Thank you for following BrewNSpew.

  9. I admire your courage, and my heart goes out to you for what you and your homeland have suffered.
    This is a beautiful post, and I can feel the longing. A very beautiful photo as well!
    May God bless you and keep you safe, and that you find the home you long for. And that we are all moved to understand what your homeland is going through.

    Thank you for visiting my site. You are in my prayers.

  10. So many of your poems and comments on home remind me of my own wandering – and also of the words of Robert Frost, who wrote, “Home is the place where, when you have to go there, / They have to take you in.”

    I hope you are not only taken in; but welcomed! I hope you not only, one day, make yourself at home; but also feel at home. I wish and dream of peace for you and those around you. M
