About Rumours of Home

Award-winning writer Hiro Boga’s new book of poems celebrates the slip-sliding, stutter-step nature of our being as the true expression of our human divinity.

Within these pages you’ll find an unfolding story of home and belonging, told in a variety of forms: narrative poems, long-form poem sequences, persona poems, lyric poems, and StarSeeds — quiet raindrops of meditative inspiration. You’ll meet your Self in many incarnations, through stories and dreams, soundplay and wordplay, intimacy with the natural world, and on voyages through the stars.

These poems are explorations of Love in its many forms. Love between you and your soul. The love that brings us together, the love that dances us apart. The Love that wraps us in the arms of the world.

In the words of best-selling author Jennifer Louden, “Hiro’s tender lyricism reunites divisions and illuminates what it truly means to belong to yourself, your soul, and your world.” 

For those of you who love poetry, and are called to explore the mystery of what it means to be fully human, Rumours of Home invites you into intimate relationship with the Sacred in the heart of our beautiful, fragile world. 

This collection of poems opens a pathway home to yourself, to the heart of your belonging. It will inspire you to make your own art, whatever that might be, and offer it to a world in profound need of your gifts.

Hillary Rubin

“These poems are the salve I didn’t know I needed for the lostness I often feel as a human in a melting world.  Hiro’s tender lyricism reunites divisions and illuminates what it truly means to belong to yourself, your soul, and your world. A masterpiece of poetic wisdom.”

Jennifer Louden, Best-selling Author 

Hillary Rubin

“These poems are diamonds of earned wisdom, generously shared with us–

‘Everything answers the call to home/Every atom journeys to the music of its belonging’

‘Perfect vulnerability is perfect strength’ and…

‘Every visitor is sacred’  

I think of Rumi’s ‘The visitor is God’ – he would love these diamonds.”

Alma Luz Villanueva, award-winning poet & novelist

Hillary Rubin

Rumi comes to mind as you read this new collection from Hiro Boga. Her exquisite poems distill the complexities of our emotional experiences into shining gems.

This is a collection to return to over and over, as each reading brings a new insight into your own soul and its unique expression. This is a collection about the paradox of living — the timelessness of our souls hanging out for awhile in a time bound space.

“Those who know Hiro Boga’s writing will once again be grateful to be in her vision’s embrace. The great-hearted spirit of this poet flows through these poems. They help us to know beyond questioning that within each of us there is a wholeness that is home, one where we have always belonged.”

Peter Levitt, Author, PeterLevitt.com

Hiro Boga’s newest collection of poems is one I will keep by my side. Reading her poems is like sitting beside a trusted friend—a wise friend who knows you well, a friend who can be trusted to look deeply and speak from the heart. Earthly, soulful wisdom. And the wisdom of the cosmos. 

I had the pleasure of spending a few days with the book, dipping in and out at different times each day. The poems always seemed to meet me exactly where I was, right at that moment. How does she do it? I don’t know. I’m just grateful Hiro shows up to the page and shares her talents with all of us.

I think you’ll keep this collection by your side, too.

Jason Poole, Writer

Hiro’s poems, like Rumi’s, are spells that lift us from the quotidian and remind us that we are all children of the divine, and that the sacred lives within us.

They open a wedge between space and time where the dross of being human falls away and we soar to meet the sacred. And when we return we are reconnected to the magic that’s all around and within us.

Ever wise, compassionate, and loving, Hiro’s poems are the medicine we need today.

Like the ripples of a pebble tossed in a pond, or the vibrations of a brass bowl that’s been struck, her words carry our attention to the far corners of our soul, where they land and take root, enriching our inner ecology.

The poems about Siddhartha leaving home are an especially powerful exploration of what it means to love, to seek, to sacrifice and to surrender.

Some favorite passages:

Heart without wisdom is a blind woman
boiling lentils in acid rain.

Stars crackle in her hearth.
The world breathes through her window.

I know
you are in me but I cannot reach you
in the rubble of my ignorance.

I am orphaned,
a lover bereft, a leather-shod beast without
breath, a vast homesick wail
in the wilderness.

Mariko Gordon, CFO, MarikoGordon.com

Every time I read Hiro’s writing, it shoots straight to my core, activating deep emotions and sending vibrations of peace and ease to my body.

This latest book of poems, Rumours of Home, is both a balm and fuel for the soul. Read it when you are feeling up, feeling down, feeling wary and tired, or just feeling bored, and experience healing through words.

Creator of Escape From Cubicle Nation and the K’é Main Street Learning Lab, PamelaSlim.com

Within just a few pages of reading this exquisite collection, I knew I was in the presence of the kind of wise and compassionate counsel that would gently but unwaveringly guide me back to my own sacred truths — those that live beneath and beyond “all the preening, pining selves.”

Line after line and poem after poem, a kind of alchemy between writer and reader occurred, dissolving my daily armor and delivering me to something immutable that I can only call my soul: “Where the husk of who you’ve been shelters your becoming.” It is also a love song to the earth itself, and an exhortation to protect this precious place, and each other. 

Ultimately, Rumours of Home is a celebration of being, with all of it beauty, grief, grace, and mystery. With “love’s patient irrigation,” each page coaxes us towards our inherent belonging, calling us to notice and name, to listen and love, fiercely and fearlessly. It’s a book I intend to keep near, to burrow into for consolation and courage alike. And I’m already looking forward to giving it to my beloveds as a holiday gift!”

Jena Schwartz, Writer, Writing Coach, JenaSchwartz.com

“I have never considered myself as someone who is drawn to poetry… and yet this book has captured my heart. In a big way.

Each poem is a an invitation into deep contemplation and I could see this being a book you open at random, like an oracle, and then working with whichever poem is revealed as a daily spiritual practise.

It feels like being enveloped into a big hug!

Hiro is one of the great writers of our day… utterly utterly breathtaking.”

Ellie Seilern, Business Mentor, Host of Gaia’s Toolbox Podcast, EllieSeilern.com

I found this book soothing, tender, and an elbow to my heart — reminding me that even when I feel tearful or fragmented, or life appears to be falling apart, there’s something holding it all together that I can trust. Or I could trust, if I follow where the poems are pointing — AKA home.

And just when I think I know what the next poem will feel like, I find myself laughing despite myself, because there’s a playfulness here too. This book is one of those treasures to have multiple copies of, the better to give freely and spontaneously to friends and unexpected visitors — yet still have a copy to myself.

Andrea J. Lee, Author, AndreaJLee.com

“When you need to belong to yourself and the world read this book!

There is a transmission of rooted hope and spiritual beauty in this book that will inspire you to know home in all its dimensions in an entirely new way. Hiro’s poems take you to where we all belong and we are all whole. I will long treasure this book and give it as a gift.

Jennifer Louden, Best-selling Author, JenniferLouden.com

These poems pulse off the page! I’m a bit astounded at how deeply Rumours of Home is reaching me. It’s gorgeous imagery and powerful invitations are palpably calling me closer to myself. As I read each piece, I notice I’m breathing more fully, becoming more present, and experiencing a greater sense of grounding, possiblity and peace.

I’m grateful for this exquisite goodness, and I’m not surprised, as I’ve found all of Hiro Boga’s writing and work to be a potent transmission, deeply infused with essence and with soul. Rumours of Home is entirely this, wrapped in lush beauty, and a sense of the sacred, evoking a feeling of immersing in a cool, clear stream. I’ve been savoring Rumours of Home bit by bit, and so look forward to continuing to steep in this soulfulness, and to gifting it to friends!

Taya Shere, Transformative Songwriter, Priestess, Taya.Ma

This is a gorgeous book. With beautiful imagery and finely crafted words we are taken to a place of deep knowing, to our wholeness, to our souls. It is a profound reminder of our wholeness “in the river of Divine Flow.” And that we are home. I so appreciate Hiro’s honesty and openness as she shares herself with us. The wisdom in these poems offers precious guidance for our daily struggles with being human and it resonates more and more with each reading.
