I’m quite happy when I’m home
Where I store my hat, my books, and comb.
Got no plans to buy a tomb
But I’ll be buried with much aplomb!
Though it will be tighter than a womb –
To move my elbows, I’d have no room.
I’ll not be staying in that coffin
No need to come by very often.
Jesus said he’s built me a mansion
That’s a plan I quickly sanction.
So in that tomb, I’m just passing through
Sailing right on through skies of blue.
Twenty homes I’ve had since birth
Through lots of years on this earth.
All together they have had moderate worth
But they’ve fulfilled my needs –
whether in sorrow, boredom or mirth.
Linda’s word prompt is “home” Just write as you think. Little editing. Let the words flow in any form and length. Thank you, Linda, for this fun event. https://lindaghill.com/2022/09/23/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-sept-24-2022/
About oneta hayes
Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
Thank you. Jesus passed through the tomb; I guess we will also, but it will be a very short stay. No time there to become a “home”.
Dear Oneta, Would you mind contacting me via email, email@example.com.
