Safety and Home

By Mary Bone

PROMPT—I am grateful for ...

Staying Safe

We are staying safe in a world of chaos,

seeking justice on a daily basis.

Supporting each other helps us heal.

It is great to express ourselves,

with courageous strength,

amidst the stress

of our daily lives.


Winding trails in the forest

led me home.

The breadcrumbs were eaten

along the way. I could smell food

cooking in the distance.

I knew I was almost there.


Mary Bone's poems have recently been published at Active Muse Journal, Visual Verse, Spillwords, Literary Yard, Words of the Lamb, and forthcoing at The Academy of the Heart and Mind. She writes from Wilson, Oklahoma.
