Loving Home

There are houses

Of varying shapes and sizes

Cement, wood, stone,

Metal,  bricks,

Or even straw…


Made with a carpenter’s dexterous skill,

And an architect’s most intelligent design.

 Animals and insects also build amazing 

Structures in which to live;

Really, a testament of God’s likha.


While houses can be made with love,

Given all the intelligence and skill

One can muster,

Love, only love, can make a house, a home…

a favorite space for resting weary heads.


-Gilda Patricia


Day 23-Word of the Day-likha (v.) To create something through intelligence and skill,
