I will be a boring woman, with my wonderful houses.

 


See me? Gray
hair flowing in the breeze, listening
for the quiet song that still makes the world
go ’round? That window there’s my
favorite of all my places, all these heart
-traces, cobbled homes I’ve tumbled
from seaglass, stone.

This cottage is built of books,
and salt. The ocean’s very near. The sky
is clear unless the day is gray – in which
I empty my fogful heart and start
all over again. Grin
at that silly sun.

Am I boring
you? This wild life rises, sets,
and I sit here still. Walk sometimes. Write
always. That’s it. Sit with me awhile, if you wish.
Stay. I’ve got all day.

    Beautiful homes constructed by a woman who is definitely NOT boring.

    Oh De, I love this so much, especially the house of books and salt with the ocean so near. And VERY soon, mine will be, too!!!!! Did you know I am returning to my beloved ocean within the week???? yippee! Cant wait for the salt and the fog and the song of the waves. And I will be the happiest boring woman ever.
