Poem: Home?

 

 

What makes a residence a home,

does it have to be a house?

If that is a criterion to pass the test,

then it would apply to a rat or a mouse.

 

Is a place considered a home to us,

if we own it ourselves, instead of rent?

Is it a factor of proprietary control,

or the designation in how our money is spent?

 

Can a travel trailer fit the bill,

or a mobile home, on wheels or blocks?

Does mobility remove it from our list,

or could we add a houseboat, tied to the docks?

 

My mountain tent serves its purpose,

when I spent a weekends camping in the park.

Because it was a temporary abode,

does that option leave it out in the dark?

 

Could a home be something other than man-made,

constructed of cement, metal, canvas, or wood?

Might it refer to anywhere people have lived,

regardless of how the structure stood?

 

Perhaps, this is a complicated question,

one that can’t be answered with poetry or rhyme.

But it does give us something to ponder,

so maybe we’ll find a good answer another time.
