she heard soft whispers

from home carried on the wind

straight into her heart

§

§

first she turned this way…

then that…    at last she found them…

the whispers from home

§

§

no matter how far

she traveled from home,  always

it whispered   “come back”

§

§

  whispers reached for her

   in the wind    …they called her home…

 irresistibly

  1. Are e both back? Yay! Something must have whispered, “come back…” ;-)

    • i was being haunted by whispers in the night ~ was that you? {smile} i’m back but still sloooooooooow ~ it only took about six hours to do one little post! f**king computer lost most of it twice. {sigh} i will be over to see you this weekend ~ really missing your words and spirit(s) {you and Coal} ~ thank you for coming by so soon. *hugs* ♥ {are you up late or early, girl? i hope late since it’s the weekend.}

  2. OMG…Shay?
    And we all know how she feels about Haiku.
    That must mean that she considers you and your posts something special.
    Anyway, Dani?
    This was a very creative 55 considering it also satisfied about 35 other prompts as well!!
    I am so honored that mine was one of them
    You Rock!!!!
    Thanks for playing, thank you for being so supportive of me, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

    • {BIG smile} thanks for coming by even though i was late, G. been trying all night to get another poem done, but i’ll be by your blog as soon as i can to catch up. thank you for being so supportive and all of your kind comments, Galen. ♥ {usually Coal stops in instead of Fireblossom, but i do try to write more than haiku for Shay.}

    Enjoyed reading…settling into…leading me back to Iowa whispers and Kentucky hugs. Especially like “home carried on the wind” and “no matter how far”
