A Beautiful Place To Stay

"Where we love is home,
Home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts."
~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., Homesick in Heaven

Linking with "Words Count"...with Mama Zen at Imaginary Gardens

Somewhere in the midst of a magnificent storm
 my heart resides upon the most beautiful bridge.
It so longs to hold a crazy profound love
while the winds of chance make the beams unhinge.
It hungers for a connection like a bridge between two lovely lands.
A place to give homestead out in the wilds of naked openness
 so ecstasy may be guarded within my own hips and another's hands.
Above the raging waters of storms that no man could ever cease
is a place my heart shall tarry in hope's own splendor
 as my yearning for this one love will always increase.

    Castle like
    And then the bridge

    I wonder the difference between a tightrope and a bridge of iron and concrete.
