A house

Stephen Chinnock

28 October 2020

How long does it take
for a house to become home
maybe three days
when friends
help so much

Bed in place
pictures on the walls
food in the fridge
towels in the bathroom
computer and sound system
in a new and comfortable place

Books sorted
on a new bookcase
the collection growing again
the internet connected
possibilities endless
to explore

The garden beckoning
for a new approach
perhaps an orchard
in the front yard
a verge of veggies
like they do in Wollongong

Strange but wonderful
to feel home again!
