My Favourite Place

Why did The Sound of Music come to mind when I read this prompt? It was mum’s favourite movie, cheesy, corny and the songs so annoyingly catchy. However, I have to admit, as a wide eyed girl, I secretly loved it.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to break into a rendition of My Favourite Things. Instead I thought I’d write a version of My Favourite Places.

I know I’m cheating, it’s plural!

My favourite place is where
there’s peace
and calmness soothes the soul.
My favourite place is where
love rules
accepting of our whole.

My favourite place is where
there’s music
and love is joined in song.
My favourite place is where
joy lives
and we feel that we belong.

My favourite place is where
there’s desire
sparks stir deep inside.
My favourite place is where
there’s hope
knowing we will thrive.

My favourite place is where
there’s laughter
and smiles are a magnet.
My favourite place is where
light reigns
even when darkness envelops.

My favourite place is where
there’s you
whenever you are near.
My favourite place is where
there’s me
embracing all the fear.

My favourite place is in
a hug
and a touch that needs no words.
My favourite place
are thoughts unspoken
though somehow they’re still heard.

My favourite place is where
there’s movement subtle change fills the air.
My favourite place is where
we grow
and life lessons take us there.

My favourite place is where
the outback
quells the storm within.
My favourite place
is where roads meet
colliding hearts unseen.

My favorite place is where
there’s mountains
and flowing rivers run deep.
My favourite place is where
oceans kiss the shoreline
and dreams are ours to keep.

There’s no one favourite place
but all are real
through many years of roaming.
All are favourites
formed in time
a world we’re blessed to live in.

Dreams awakening in the Warburton Redwood Forest
A magical day ends over the Flinders Ranges
Coral and colour collides around Coffin Bay, South Australia
A surreal landscape on the salt lake floor of Lake Hart
The grand majesty of Uluru
The pristine beaches of Wilsons Prom
Me, myself and my two little feet at Arkaroola
You know you’re alive standing underneath Trentham Falls

Many of you have seen these photos before from our travels … from the surreal beauty of Lake Hart, the spiritual awe of Uluru, our magnificent beaches and the awe inspiring mountains of the Flinders Ranges.

They’re all some of my favourite places but they’re just the tip of the iceberg.

How can I possibly name just one? That’s like asking which of my kids I love more or would I prefer my arm or my leg. It’s impossible to answer because I love them all and they’re all a part of me.

My favourite place is wherever I happen to be in the moment and right now it’s home. Ask me next weekend when we’re camped underneath different skies and it’ll probably be somewhere different!

How about you? Do you have a favourite place?

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing.

In light and love as we continue the journey.

  1. Hello dear Miriam,
    It’s awesome to see another beautiful poem from you. You must have felt the huge encouragement from all your comments after your first one! I thought we were going to find a video of you further down the page of you singing these words with your guitar…😍
    But we were showered with your pretty images and lovely thoughts on your favourite place. It’s hard for me to respond to your question. There are so many but I’ll just say where I am right now is my new favourite. It moves with me and my travels…over Easter it was the Lake District. Tomorrow, some place else…
    That’s how I do it, I think!
    Thank you for a lovely post my friend 🙋🏻🌈💕

    1. Hi Di,you know me well, I actually contemplated doing a video on this post but decided against it.
      Glad to know that where you are right now is your favourite place also, there really is no better place to be is there and clearly you’re loving your time in London. Keep enjoying my dear friend and thank you for your, as always, kind words here. Sending you much love and hugs xo 💕

      1. I love to think I know you well, my friend. It’s a pleasure and I’m glad I was on the right track here.
        You are very welcome, and yes, the transient nature of me just wants to set up Home everywhere we have ever visited. Including Rio! I must have been a gypsy in another life…
        Thank you for your beautiful love and hugs that I have received gratefully Miriam 🙏🏼🙏🏼🌈🌎💜💜
