tanka, other poetry, & insignificant writings of janet lynn davis
A beautiful house, I think.
Wonderfully accurate of my house and me. Some parts are aging gracefully, but not all.Adelaide
Gail - Most of the weathered, old look of my house is deliberate (at least on the inside). Not sure I like feeling like it, though!Adelaide - I'm not sure if any of my parts are aging gracefully. ;)
I've always had an affinity for - and been very comfortable around - old, well used things. As things are playing out, perhaps that was a bit prophetic on my part. Ha! I enjoyed this tanka, Janet.
I v. much agree: sometimes old things are just better than newer, "perfect" things. Thanks!
Thank you for visiting my blog and your kind comment.
The wry humor in this is so relatable! I love old houses--they feel like home to me.
