Four Walls


April 2017

A wall to the east
to catch the new sun
through the jagged peaks.
Thick plaster and deep windows
to bathe in the light
and suck it in.

A wall to the north
to hold the mountain
and grasp the ground.
Humid concrete and shiny rock
to feel the earth
and ground the house.

A wall to the west
to salute the last sun
looking over the abyss.
Grass, wood and polished stone
to merge house and land
mirroring mountain and sky.

A wall to the south
looking over the valley
from a mountain throne.
Wood bathes in the sun
grass grows into plaster
being house and place.

A highlight above shimmers,
coppery glow pointing upward,
the house touches the sky.
