Home: My Favorite Place on Earth

My favorite place to be is home. It has been said that home is the place where they have to take you in!  Home to me is a haven and a sanctuary of peace.  Coming home  is the highlight of the
day.  (And everyone always seems glad to see me come!)

In honor of my love for home, I have written a few limericks. I was inspired by Mare, writer of Adventures in the Ballpark, after reading her limerick post.  I have no desire to write a poem, but limericks seemed like something fun to try.

My first limerick is a sentimental one, entitled, Haven

I’ve made my little house a home
From it I never want to roam
It’s cozy and warm
Filled with love and charm
A haven of rest is my home

My next limerick was written using my sister-in-law, Cora, for inspiration.  She uses the word, "chill," a lot.

Coming home to me is a thrill
Oh, I never can get my fill
 I walk through the door
Kick shoes to the floor
Relax in my chair and just chill

I love using the words aroma and fragrance!  The imagery of those words just spell home to me.  I give you:

 Aroma of Home
The fragrance of my home is sweet
Flavored by love, oh it’s a treat
Laughter, sweet caring
Stories for sharing
Family makes home life complete.

A poet I'm not, but a lover of home I am.  Where is your favorite place to be?

Hey Jeri! Great job! Your home is so cozy. Love the Chill poem. I think limericks are, really, fairly easy, don't you? You rock!!

They say home is where the heart is, but i don't think that is as it used to be, were to busy when we come home after working, that we have to do the chores, cook dinner etc. and we don't have time to sit back and chill!!!
