A Painted House

Picture by Dana Dampier


Morning Solitude
Penetrates wood pores
Awakening A Painted House
Luring anxious Windows and Doors
To fling outward accepting
The decisive Suns spotlight
Baptizing it in an ethereal glow
As birdsong fastens the mood

Dana

    1. Thank you! The house is the main focus in this poem, but the dawn is simply wonderful too!

  5. Very visual, sensual also (maybe it felt sensual because I'm in Paris, everything seems sensual ;) Very nice, evocative poem.

  6. I'm feeling a tie-in to Dickinson's House of Possibility. Nicely done.
