Of Home – Poetry by Carrie Magness Radna

Maxfield Parrish – Knave of Hearts

The ones that follow the wind’s whims,
they are not lost, choosing to roam 
upon the Earth’s face and corners
;the whole world is their home;
their hearts burning like an inferno.

The ones that build their houses in one spot,
skyscrapers, shacks and cul-de-sacs,
their souls are calmed and quieted
while staring longingly at the fire 
growing in the hearth.
