The Heart Goes Home For Christmas (Season’s of the Heart)

The Northern lights 

they call her home


Cry of the wolf 

forlorn he weeps for her


Stars are brilliant with life 

awaiting her return


The frozen north anticipates 

new breath of life


Warm summer breeze 

longs to caress her face


Pulling her back

to familiar senses ~ beings of once a time


Sun kisses northern lakes 

in hopes to glimmer the eye


Ache – is strong it pulls the heart 

towards the country of sunsets


Tis autumn leaves brilliant 

with spectacular shades


Time is short 

the chill of winter is lurking 


Drawing closer with every eve

restless turns anxious


Will the heart make it 

back in time?


Whistling wind brings first snowfall 

with flurry it arrives!


A blanket of fresh white linen

covers earth to keep it warm


Reflection dancing lights 

twinkle in brilliance against the snow,


For shadows of footprints

 not seen by naked eye 


Drifting satisfying from the wind

the soul has come home 


She has made it safe 

no more her heart will roam!

  1. This is absolutely one of your best, most stirring poems I’ve read, Kathy! It doesn’t just make me understand, but feel, and even have a sense of the places you transport us to, beneath the northern lights. Beautiful!

  2. Breathtaking and evocative expression of such beauty! Wonderful words that weave their way into all our senses. Simply lovely! You make us feel, see and taste this experience. I agree with Neil. This is stunning work ~ definitely one of your best, Kathy. 🙂 xx
