Little Nuggets….

Six words


Seek Wisdom like nuggets to treasure;

Embrace her with every pleasure;

For she will give good measure;

Under all forms of pressure.


If I should tell you my secret;

Would you chirp it like a cricket?

Dragging down my spirit;

Just for a meal ticket.


To my heart, home is where you are;

Your warm embrace and distinct fragrance;

Pulls me in and gives me anchor;

From place to place;

Through seasons of time;

and the parade of many faces.

Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha

  1. Hey Jacqueline…Yes indeed! “Distinct fragrances pull me in and give me anchor.” I like that!!
    I like how the smell of burning coal lingering in the winter air takes me back to my childhood home and my dad stoking the coal furnace in the basement…Thanks for sharing! GinaBlue
