Some renovation-
wood beams that can breathe easy
no clothes for them now

/ / /

This poem was written in response to the renovation prompt at Haiku Heights.

It just so happens that a construction company is renovating a house half a block from the school where I teach. My son and I pass it twice a day.

  2. Like this. Very nice.

    I live in a 1930 house…redoing room by room…
