My Design, Climb High: Home in South Africa

image

You progress through a series of spaces
Open up the doors,
See in front of you
A living view

A pond,
Everywhere there is sweet water
Look towards the garden,
Patterns speak of stories in distant lands

Uniformity of materials
A textured stucco
All were the same kind of wood.

Enter this way
The tower stair leads high
Enter the courtyard
And come inside

    Looking back through the old drops. This poem is really lovely! “Everywhere there is sweet water,” “A textured stucco.” Soft language, a light touch. Not too hot, not too cold. Just right :)
