In my island house there are…

ancient songs,

dreams of adventure and the sky,

mysterious clans

In my garden house there are…

hollyhocks,

smells of moss and soil,

grandmother’s rusty gardening shears

In my river house there is…

children’s laughter,

the rocking of the waves,

the freedom found in gusty winds

In my house, there is room for all of this

And for you.
