Colour of Shelter, Hoofddorp

 

Swans at the canal

 

 

Swans at the canal

Colour of shelter

 What is the colour of shelter ?

 

Woody, warm fireplace

Woody, as in the jungle

Warm dark, like the Mahogany

Ovenbaked, smelling of home

This world feels cold, home feels warm

View of the canal in Hoofddorp, Netherlands

Romance in the canal

 

Blue as the clear blue sky,

Blue as the Indian ocean,

swimming in warm, sensual waters,

Blue as blue at home alone…

Can’t be bluer for me  at home.

Mother Duck

 

A mother’s war

 

the not-so-graceful

Warm as yellow; basking sun,

Warmer; orange,

or simply hot; molten iron

The red hot of fire,

Is no home

and four walls and a roof  is no shelter

Lilies

 

Shelter is a bus stop on a

rainy day

A little smile

on a bloody bad cold day

A touch of a hand

on a sick day

A cosy windowsill

for the bird to perch on  

 

Flowers in the tall grass

Shelter

A little of you

At the end of the day.
