After the rain, I walk alone,  along soft footpaths

The sun warming my soul, healing the pain of the bitter storms

Following the long winding road that leads to a new tomorrow.

Home beckons from around the next bend.

Sanctuary of grace and peace

Dancing motes of sunlight reflect a joyous heart,

freed from bondage...

A soaring hawk, silently tracking my progress

Graceful symbol of freedom from the past

I have come through the other side of bitterness

into a place of loving peace


The weathered gate offers a loving welcome ..

For all who enter

Mullioned windows opened wide 

embrace the soft breeze

and healing light

A place of love and laughter.

Earned through scouring years of pain


Treading softly on burnished oaken floors,

I find him waiting

Dozing by the fire, glasses slipped halfway down his beloved face

Softly I ease onto his lap, arms twined round his neck and whisper,...

Home now my beloved,

safe in your heart once again.

Our lined faces etched with lifes fingerprints,

crease with joy,

His mouth closes on mine with sudden need

On clean soft sheets..

 he lies over me

Our hands twined,

eyes gazing into each other's souls,

 he enters my liquid depths.. silently

We stay motionless..

We are home safe...,joined in silent rapture

My body trembles, arches against him

As he pours his warm seed into my pulsing body

We join in a long moment of blinding,searing oneness

Two souls one heart

Home at last,

 in the late afternoons fading light

The cadence feeds into the heart of the happiness of finding, and keeping, 'home'. Lovely imagery, cooling sensations, great piece, Candida! And a lovely picture which beckons one to enter. :)

Wow... I need to find that winding road you were on. When I take a walk, all I get at the end of it is blisters.
Beautifully written.
