[Poetry] Coming Home

In the dark, I followed the stars,
Twinkling steadily and kindly,
Lighting the path to a place so far,
To a place waiting patiently for me.

Twinkling steadily and kindly,
The stars guide me as I make my way
To a place waiting patiently for me,
I know I am meant to arrive one day.

The stars guide me as I make my way,
Though I may stumble from time to time,
I know I am meant to arrive one day,
This journey and its obstacles are solely mine.

Though I may stumble from time to time,
I will never give up hope.
This journey and its obstacles are solely mine,
The stars will guide me home.

My very first pantoum! A poetry form that originated in Malaysia, this pantoum was challenging to write, but I hope I did it right.

Written for dVerse Poetry Forms, hosted by my sweet friend Gina. I’m a little late to the party!

  1. no not late at all! the prompt is open a month long so poets can perfect the form. this was wonderful Jade, your pantoum sang back and forth and came full circle, your first and last line though not identical echo the same meaning perfectly, well done, the rhymes are gentle and soft like waves lapping at the heart. i also love the journey of life you write about, you own it and make it worthy. love it! more please!!
