Meditation : Home

Home is not the shelter

Of man-made walls

Of wood or concrete

Which greet the dawn,

Or in the sunny fields

Of human labor

Where flowers grow

And children play

Or evening the quiet satisfaction

At the end of the day

That life has been accomplished

But in the cathedral of the spirit

Erected daily as the heart

Builds its own sanctuary

Of love and laughter.
