Penultimate Home

Penultimate home: your last home
Quiet peace. TV in the background
Light and sunny. Beautiful view
But its not home. Nothing can replace home
A home in-between.

Your last home: bereft of home
Day after day, night after night
One the same as before and after
Each fading into the other
A home of gray oceans.

Bereft of home: just a tunnel
And a far distant light ...
