Going Home









©Jeanne E Webster


I went home last night:


To Massachusetts

To my mountains

To the Berkshires

To Lake Mattawa

To Bears Den

To Walnut hill

To the Mohawk trail







To the apple orchards

To Mount Monadnock

To the rolling rivers

To the rocky pastures

To the pink lady slippers

To the Indian paint brushes

To the Pond

To the little old church by the wild woods

To the old Cobb house

To Daniel Shay highway

To the sugar maple trees

To Holtshire Road cemetery….

If only in my dreams.

    What a lovely dream! : )

    • Thank you, Dicky. If you ever have a chance to travel to New England, especially in the fall, take it. You will love it.

      I have lived in many places, even overseas, but my heart will always call Massachusetts home. My spirit never left.

      So…dream on about your “home” and keep writing. 🙂

  2. Lovely dream. I am in MA and just got back from lovely Concord!

    • Wow! I hope you enjoy your visit with family and the colorful sites. Wonderful time to see the leaf colors there.

      Eastern Massachusetts is nice but the air is a bit fresher in the western part of the state. (Of course, I’m partial.) 🙂
