A Place

The writer seeks a place,
quiet and comfortable with books
and the necessary tools.

The lonely seeks a lover,
tender and understanding
with eager ear and open heart.

The homeless seeks a shelter,
more than food or warmth,
a place of caring and respect.

There are things you desire
and those that are necessary,
and some which are both.

    Awesome … will be one of my favorites this week!

  4. I love these last lines:
    There are things you desire
    and those that are necessary,
    and some which are both.

    Beautiful.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
