Houses are a marvelous invention.
They have windows that open to the outside,
just like eyes,
you can open them to see what's going on.
I like to nap by an open window with the shades drawn.
I invite the world into my quiet space,
all the sounds alight with a soft greeting--
birds squawking & chirping,
cars rolling by,
dogs talking their barks to each other,
construction workers hollering out their progress--
while I settle down into a short snooze,
until it's time to move again.
Houses are home, shelter, comfort
& we can fill them with love
just by opening our heart to the world.
