I Want A House

I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.


I Want a House

I want a house...

I want a house I can call a home

I want a home of floating mindscape

I want a house with conflict and drama

(illustrious not disastrous)

I want a home that never changes

I want a home in open space

I want a house whose melody vibrates through time

I want a home as object or filled with objects

I want a house crawling with life

I want a house that changes a little, maybe less conflict,

I want a home of flexible interior

like a combustion of one million stringed instruments

I want a house to read

I want a house that holds a day

I want a house full of footsteps

I want a house with comfortable stylish furniture

I want a home with a ceiling

I want Saturday Evening Post comfort

I want a home that forgives my doubts

I want a home as a barrier and barricade

I want a house to hide my aching feet

I want a home that feels the change of seasons

Yes, I was thinking like Bill, even before I read his comments. Knowing you, you shouldn't be short of most of the things you've included. That would include sweet chaos and confusion, of course. Chuckle. Happy Easter to all!

A good writer/poet can create from the most mundane of words. Well done! I suspect, with your children, you always have a "home." Happy Easter to you and your family.

An interesting poem, Jamie. We all want a home, don’t we? Whether it is actually a house or something else. We can make a home where ever our loved ones are.
