Crossing borders to go home

Crossing borders to go home

I heard the cattle call my name across the distant fields
‘Hommme, hommmme, hommme,’ they lowed,
giving me direction and telling me I belonged.

The sheep were next to bleat the promise

reminding me that I have strayed too far, too long.

Over my head, large birds swooped and swept, circling round,
diving down to take a closer look at this newcomer,
but finding only the familiar, they darted off again.

I had come home to a land I’ve never known,
yet it knew me, and somehow, I did know it,
and in its sun-drenched embrace, my heart finally found its place.
