Memories of Home

Photo by Clem Onojeghuo on

Ever homeward

Waiting destination

Year after year

Leaving last train station


Traveling forward

Allowing no backward glance

Final ticket punched

Cashing in for final dance


Journey’s sunset

Saying “hello” once more

Second chances

Taking life’s encore


Garden filled with dreams

Sprouting memories of home

Season to season

Riding free, ready to roam


Yesterday’s clues

Arriving with each breeze

Earmarked answers

Lighting up home’s marquee


Infinite sunrise

Forsaking final “good-bye”


Greeting Montana’s Big Sky

This poem reflects upon many memories of my native state of Montana, which will always seem like home.  Perhaps each reader will experience his or her own homeward journey of memories, just waiting to be revisited again.

  1. Brought back memories of my childhood spent in the foothills of the Blue Ridge. You never know what you have until it’s not there for you anymore. We have since visited but it’s just not the same without my family there.

  2. I like how you call your title Memories of Home. Also, I really like the pictures. They really do represent your home in Montana. It is so cool when you post pictures that help you remember Montana. Montana looks so pretty from all of the pictures you have used. You have so many cool Mountain Views!!!! So Pretty!! Montana what a beautiful place for you to live!!
