In my new home
windows encase one end of my
living room, wide ranch slider
at their centre, light pouring in.

Along one side wall
more windows, light pouring in,
making a light filled cheerful
living room, better than I have
had before. Floor length drapes
pull to dim the light when it
too brilliant, in summer.

Opened up, my ranch slider
leads out to more space,
my front entry ramp, to greetings
from people going past.

I have long enjoyed the light
airy openness of so many
modern buildings built over
the last two decades.

    1. Very interesting ! The Maori first started arriving here around 1200. The first Europeans were whalers and sealers who started arriving around 1790. The first European settlers started living here in the early 1800’s. those of us in the far flung parts of the globe find your old houses fascinating.
