A Lite Blanket, A Brick Wall…

Filed under: Ungrouped — Vasilios Theodorakis @ 6:00 pm

Without disguise
Peace is poured into cavities,
And I lean
As hard as strength allows,
Cradled
By mortar and wood.

So long lived
Amongst the elements,
My being
Was lip serviced
By fibro,
Fronting as home.

And now? I clutch at good fortune
Wondering, what next.
Were I
To entertain confidence,
The road ahead would be paved
By dreams and grace filled places.

Hence, as lids get laden
Goodness surrounds me,
Extended by the solidarity of brick against brick.
Something, unknown to me
Since childhood,
But comforting none the less.

Dedication (For Our Home)
