Finding a home

amazing amazing but darn hot!
That view seems to have swung it

 

 

 

 

 

 


Sundrops turn twin towers to diamonds,

as through the haze of square feet trod

I see our future day-to-day

spread out, a banquet

across the widescreen window,

over the hills, gardens, skyscrapers

towards grey-green mountains where it’s cool.

 

Surveying empty surfaces, blank walls,

from the corner of my eye

 I spy my purple mug

 on a bright white counter,

 my books rehoused on naked shelves

 and hear new life’s approaching  hum

 pouring into holes that fit

 between treasures that are not yet there.

I could sit there too, by that view so vast

 it stretches past imagination,

 baiting me to trace its contours

 on my heart

 and turn a vacant space into a home.

 

No, Ian is not signing something but it looks like it! He is writing our pre-pre-inspection fix list.
