Stairs Are Waiting

stairs are waiting
      in the shadows

(part of the house basks 
   in spots of sunshine)

stairs and doorway
      hidden in shade

      gables are brightly
illuminated by the sun
looking like a dream home


whose house this is
   i think i never knew

beautiful wooden siding
   covers the outer walls


   clear green water flowing
from a mountain glacier
   many miles upstream

      that water's so cold
when you have a drink
   your brain freezes


today bright flower baskets
   hang from corners

and there's so much to forgive
