Dear House

Paper Poetry’s inaugural weekly prompt: home

A pencil illustration in purple tones of a door key with a filigreed heart-shaped head and teeth in the word, HOME.
Artwork and image by writer

Dear house I call home,
together we grow old
life’s dents, scrapes, and knocks
bandaids of paint
memories etched in the bricks
for safe keeping.




We are living in the digital world, covered in the autonomous aspects & tracked motions of life. Yet, somehow we are losing some critical elements. Keyboards, touchpads, & speech-to-text are there, but we believe that handwritten words on paper is still meaningful to some poets.
