This week’s photo prompt is provided by Jodi McKinney.
It was that half light,
Headlights, or not,
Lighting the way
Of a road long forgot.
He remembered the time
So long ago
When he left in anger
Yet with nowhere to go.
He succeeded and failed,
But had not given in,
Kept pushing and trying,
Not forgetting his kin:
Now he was back
Rich beyond compare
Returning to his roots
Knowing they’d still be there.
It was Christmas Eve,
He was coming home,
Having followed his destiny,
There was no need to roam.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    No need to roam — is a mindset that pulls us back to warmth and comfort, but does not last forever.
