NaPoWriMo 2016: Day 1 - Roots

Prompt: Write a lune

Home is where the heart
Grounds itself
Sending down deep roots.

A decade since returning here
And I realise
I’ve only scratched its surface:

Roots splayed everywhere
Shallow, lacking depth.

Three days to leaving
I’m surprised
By a strange feeling:

Loss, like a lover yearning.
Finally I’m home -
My roots have grown deep.
