a new bistro set –

we rest on the porch eating

potato pancakes

Do you believe in Feng Shui? I do. At least I think I do. As Wikepedia states, Feng Shui is “an ancient Chinese system of aesthetics” often used during building and interior design.  Good design will bring good energy and conversely, bad design can bring misfortune and bad energy.  I know little of the laws of Feng Shui but I do know that my house lacks balance. I have no idea how to arrange furniture. Somehow I do not have that innate sense despite graduating college with a painting degree. As former New Yorkers who spent most of our adult years living in tiny apartments, my husband and I also do not have enough furniture to fill up the house we live in. So as we accumulate pieces slowly, much of the house still looks bare. And I feel this energy, this bareness sometimes. But today… the bistro set arrived. A lovely little table with flower patterns and two chairs that I got on sale at a local garden store. I set a pot of Rosemary down on the table while I sat and had lunch with Penny this afternoon. Ah!!!! Energy. And while much of the porch is still bare the energy is starting to flow.

Philly then New York,

Arizona, Alaska

and Argentina.

.

Now it’s New Hampshire

and my home is everywhere

and nowhere at once.

.

This bright green landscape

blurry with the pounding rain –

“I’m Coming Home” plays.

.

I miss everyone,

I miss everywhere even

the place I’m standing.

.

My neighbor’s red roof

these puffs of Hydrangea –

Oh, how familiar!

Home Owner’s Haiku:

an unexpected

thirteen hundred dollar bill –

it happens each month

.

my father told me

I should have been a plumber –

Perhaps he was right?

.

But wait, I have goals!

I’ve mapped it all out, my plan

to bring home some bacon.

.

If not I must learn

these trades: carpentry, plumbing,

and chimney sweeping!
