So where do I “land” – Haiku(s) – poem

I wrote the poem made up of haiku’s in response to a posting that a fellow blogger and friend of mine made here. She continues to speak her heart, lay out life struggles and observations of life. Thanks for sharing heart Rachanna!

So where do I “land”

Homeland beckons me
New land calls to stay as well
Should I stay or go

Maybe in between
Singapore or somewhere else
Launching spot to home

But where is home now
A way of life and knowledge
My kids are building

Pee Wee soccer games
Pizza, Beer (for the adults)
Astro Boy movie

Laying out cheese trays
Bridges between two cultures
Friends from both are blessed

Culture still infused
Eat, Pray, shop and cook
A blending of both

A mother land lost?
No, a mother-in-law land gained
Both lived and loved in

So where do I land
The land does not make the home
Kids, Hubby and me

Thanks for sharing you,
Indian mom with Pizza
I feel your hardship

Though not from knowledge
I’ve learned by moving countries
But through your words here

In friendship from here
Palms together with slight bow
Namaste, Peace to you

May you find the peace
That with calm heart allows you
To know where home is

Strength and Peace to you

    This is very beautiful. You have some wonderful visuals blended with a lot of sensory awareness, smells, sights, sounds, feelings. Thank you for sharing this with all of us. Light and Blessings.

    • Suzie,
      Thanks for the comments and welcome to my site. Hopefully you’ll have some more time to look around. I appreciate the comments / feedback but must give credit to “Heart” (Rachanna) as much of my expression came from content / images in her post.



  2. Heart says:

    And you call yourself a friend.. ??! Ha ha.. I am laughing and crying unconsolably and that’s because of you..
    The two words thank you will not be able to tell you how grateful I am, no one’s attempt to fill that void has quite matched what you did, thanks Stephen.

    • Rachanna,
      The good news for all of us is that no matter where you land or where you call home, you’ll likely have access to the internet so we’ll still get insights into your life 😀
      Keep writing and thanks again for sharing your heart! I hope the crying was a good thing, at least a healing thing…

    Beautiful, Stephen. A welcome as well as a consolation to “Heart”.

    Stephen, is there any greater confirmation of a loving friend than showing her she has been deeply heard? Your compassion is showing with such beauty.

    • Amy,
      Thanks for stopping by and leaving me encouraging words. I hope you take some time to look around as I trust there’s more here you’ll enjoy. Thanks again for your comments.

    Home is where family and love is! Beautiful!

  6. Blaga,
    Agreed and Thanks!

    Hope you’re enjoying your coffee 🙂 Have a great Friday!

    What a wonderful friend you are to Rachanna–a beautiful tribute to her work and who she is. I just loved this–wonderfully done.


  8. Gayle,
    I appreciated her expression. Thanks for commenting! Plenty more haiku’s, but I don’t believe there are any more long haiku – poems…

    Thanks for taking time to give feedback.
