If Your Home Was A Person Who Would It Be

What Did You Come Up With ?

It's no fun if you don't try

Then you can read and see if we agree or disagree

My home is a place of comfort after the hardest of days

Where I leave all my troubles out on my porch

To tackle when I am good and ready but usually not right now

As I open the door I immediately feel safe

I look around at each room

Comfortable and not to fancy

It has it's own modern but casual style

I can look out any window and see trees yes beautiful trees

They bring me close to nature where the animals are close by but not inside

My home is a little bit chilly in the winter

So we can save on the heat

Then of course we aren't so tired and we don't want to sleep the day away

The light comes beautifully in every room

Giving us incredible natural light that feels just right

I live in a ranch home that is one level and has a wrap around deck in the back

So nice to sit on the deck but sometimes the suns heat gets a little too much

So we have an umbrella for some shade

In the front we have a flag flying

Very proud of being an American and love to show the world

Around back we have a small fish pond

With lovely fish if they survive the summer

Sometimes they last a few days and we had times they almost lasted through the winter

A bird feeder hanging by the back deck

That the squirrel loves and the birds do too

On the back deck we have little white lights

When lit they look like the bow of a ship floating in the middle of the night

We have an apple tree around front

The apples are too tart but I try eating them anyway

There is a gravel drive way that crunches under our tires when we drive in and out

A wishing well sits quietly on the grass

I can't walk by without making one more wish

Then checking to see if it becomes reality

A rock wall stands firm holding it's ground

Showing off it's simple charm

You can see a shed if you peek around the corner

Where I hide all my summer stuff for the winter and the mighty snow blower

That has paid for itself many times over

Blazing through the nasty of winters

The green grass and just the right perfect weed combination covers the whole back yard

Scattered plants and wild rose bushes decorate with color

Two sweet small bedrooms and an a cozy little office are hidden under one roof

Topped off with an open kitchen and a den

Where we take in a little t.v. and I often fall asleep on the couch

If my home was a person it would be...

A lovely older woman who still has beauty and a sparkle

One that works out and feels great

Has a sexy shape with just a little belly

She has worked many years for the same company

Loyal and dedicated

Trustworthy and very creative

Healthy and a true friend

She dresses nice and catches the guys eye

When her hair blows wildly in the wind

Her eyes are a dark brown and a smile that pleases

Lips that tease followed by a wink

Your always feel welcome and there is no place you would rather be

Hi DREAM ON. What a lovely poem!! If my home was a person, it would definitely be my wife. Nothing makes the home cooler than one's spouse. Voted up, beautiful, awesome and interesting.

Voted up and interesting. This was very creatively done. Your house sound so welcoming. My house would be a gentle, old lady who has retired and has her days when things creek and are not feeling too good but for the most part she feel comfortable, quiet and well like home.
