Lost and Found

“Your sacred space is where you can 
find yourself over and over again.”
― Joseph Campbell

When politics ache
I practice finding home
for warmth and sanctuary.

When heart aches, home
reaches out to find me
searching for it where I stand.

There, here, I enter
my lair with God, and God
is all I am, wild with love.

In this signal house
I perceive your Godness, too,
and call from my home to yours,

My blog poems are rough drafts.

How badly we need those sanctuaries at times... beautiful take on space, Susan.

Luv the uninhibited call to God's love

"There, here, I enter
my lair with God, and God
is all I am, wild with love."

Have a nice Wednesday

much love...

In this particular political climate, I do feel homeless. Perhaps if I practice finding home, it will be easier to bear.

I love the warmth and sanctuary of home. A safe retreat and refuge from the craziness out there. LOVE "God is all I am, wild with love." And adore the calling from your home to another's. In short, I adore this beautiful poem!

I call this "circling my wagons." I need these quiet spaces, too. Loved this.

Your poem gives me a sense of peace about the present situation. May God's home and our home be one!

We create our own safe worlds with our families and loved ones and together find we can cope with the adversities of life. What a beautiful poem this is Susan.

Truly sacred space is this. "I practice finding home" Love the line. the restlessness within us brings us to the sanctuary we're seeking.

Godliness provides the solace at home that one finds elusive outside the four walls!

A lovely piece, Susan. I think mist of us feel that our home is our sacred space, one that provides sanctuary, rest and relief. It is becoming more and more important to have that space as the world becomes increasingly troubled and society increasingly intrusive.
