Dream Home Haikus

Dream Home Haikus

By Audrey Schwartzberg

As a little girl
I always wanted a house
With a turret room

A kitchen pantry
Dog curled beside the wood stove
A mudroom for boots

 

Tree house and sandbox
A picnic spot by the pond
Paradise for kids

 

A plot of good land
And a path to the forest
Peace amid the trees

 

Editor’s note: This was originally published by Adirondack Center for Writing as part of ANCA’s Dreaming of Home project. The prompt: Do you have ideas about programs or practices that might work to mitigate the housing crisis in the Adirondacks? Think as big or as small as you like.
