Little one

scoped you from the sea ~ from the stormy grey oceans ~ brought you back to me — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa0

Placeless

timeless travellers ~ we are at home everywhere ~ and nowhere at all — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Trails

maybe you went home ~ maybe you went somewhere else ~ but some of you stayed — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Travellers

so far-far away ~ from what home’s supposed to be ~ yet here we belong — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Roaming hearts

this feels much like home ~ even though I’m far away ~ here I found a place — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

In Africa

I wanted to see ~ the many facets of life ~ but the core was here — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Homecoming

like a swallow’s flight ~ bringing sunshine to the rain ~ a return to you —­ © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Grounded

wanderers at sea ~ in the mountains and the air ~ where do we find home? — Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Home

rain on a tin roof ~ dry red dust between my toes ~ child of Africa — Lize Bard © Haiku out of Africa

Offering

I pick a red rose ~ for your far-away cold home ~ bringing summer warmth

Instinct

like a homing dove ~ my impulse to fly to you ~ to break from restraints

Arrival

when souls can be touched ~ through our poetry alone ~ we have arrived home

Abode

when I’m far away ~ home is how you sing my name ~ on a rainy day
