Home is the centre of love
That we create with and for each other
Home is the safe space
Where we can be ourselves, unmasked
Home is the place of joy
Brought alive by family and friends

When we are weary
Home is the resting place of rejuvenation
When we are winning
Home is the swirling room of victory dancing
When we are dreaming
Home is the flaming hearth of endless possibility

Home is setting down roots
For a day, a year or a lifetime
Home is our treasure chest
To store shared memories, old and new
Home is our small piece of earth
To take care of and nurture together

String, Donuts, Bubbles and Me: Favourite Philosophical Poems

This creative collection, now in its 3rd edition, brings together philosophical poems by Wayne Visser. In this anthology, he muses on subjects ranging from space, angels and destiny to time, science and meaning in life. According to scientists / The world’s made of string / That buzzes and fuzzes / Or some such strange thing / It’s also a donut / That curls round a hole / With middles and riddles / Just like a fish bowl / And there’s no mistaking / It’s more than 3-D / With twenty or plenty / Dimensions unseen / Still others insist / It’s really a bubble / That’s popping and bopping / Through the lenses of Hubble. Buy the paper book / Buy the e-book.
