Opening their windows to let in light!
The summer heat had lulled this house to sleep but now with temperatures dropping
and winter slowly approaching, its walls are complaining. Its just too cold and its bones
The house won’t stop creaking at night
Is it trying to say something I don’t
want to hear? Houses say words too
they hold what is true! They are faithful,
wrapping their arms around us
opening their windows to let in light
touching us with rays of daylight . . .
Selected verses from my poem ‘The Voice’
Every year when the temperatures drop
my house starts creaking, causing frightful
sleep. But sometimes the difficult messages
I don’t want to hear, are turned into ones of hope!
