Haiku’s Hammering in Me

St M's visqueen.png

All over, building

at our church and our cabin

and across the street.

 

It’s like long ago,

everything was in flux

when we were wardens.

 

Visqueen in our house

and in the cathedral’s nave,

hung on the same day.

 

Our bright new kitchen,

a new wall and rose window.

Wonderful results!

 

Twenty years later

reconstruction’s underway.

Promising projects.

 

But those beloved ones

with ailing hearts and bodies

also face repairs.

 

Will they shine again?

Clearly I would choose them first

over the buildings.
