The classic ode. A loving tribute to what stirs the heart. There is something about home that bestows a sense of peace, comfort, and belonging. Home sustains us. Walk through the door after a long day and inhale. It smells familiar, like a favorite sweater.
Take a photograph a cherished spot in your home, during your favorite time of day. Is it a whisper to a secret place, or an arms-open-wide, laughing welcome to all who gather? Capture the space from an unexpected angle.
Share your Ode to Home with us. Post your photo play on your blog, Flickr, or Pinterest account, and leave the link in a comment on this post. Some photos will be chosen for feature at Tweetspeak Poetry and all will be posted on our Pinterest Photo Play board. Deadline for submissions is this Thursday. See you back here soon!
Thank you to everyone who participated in last week’s poetry prompt. Here is a poem from Nancy that reminds us of home and the pleasures of eating cereal (which may or may not be for the kids):
Oh Captain, my captain;
Skipper of cereal crunch
—by Nancy Franson
