Word-High July: Halakhak



The unforgiving day
has worn me out.

With sulky soul
I entered and heard
the loud laughter
of mom and dad,
followed by
the giggles of
my little lasses and lad.

I went in
and was welcomed
by their warm smiles.

My worn out soul
was revived.
My lungs breathe again.

I am home.
