Build me a home

With pieces of me

Open heart plan

Tulips and trees

Walls of words spoken

Timeless and treasured

Cloud me a ceiling

Cottoned and feathered


Blueprint my passions

Shutter my fears

Sprinkle my garden

With laughter and tears

Montage my memories

In order, not fancy

Stardust my floors

Let me be dancy


For dVerse Poetics where our guest host, Sara McNulty has asked us “to imagine that you have been given free rein to design any type of building you wish”.

  6. I absolutely love every line of this poem — and every nook and cranny of this beautiful magical home! Stardust my floors …. montage my memories. I shall come dancing over in my soft pink ballet slipper to share a cup of tea honeyed with smiles❤
