Ordinary

This is my five minute friday post, its a poem I wrote about the messy beauty of an ordinary house.

Beautiful Mess

Welcome to our house.
Open up the door
There are muddy bootprints scattered on the floor
That's because three puddle jumpers just walked in
Too excited to take off their shoes...
"Mama, mama are socks are soaked through!"

This house, this house...yes its our house
It's a beautiful mess...

Come sit on the couch
Pardon those crumbs, and please overlook the stickers
A cookie and a book were just enjoyed by baby sister

This house, this house...yes its our house...
It's a beautiful mess...

Pull up a chair at our table
Mom is cooking dinner and soon we will be able
To eat fresh bread and gulp sweet lemonade
But first we must clean off the paper, crayons, and paint...
Our art projects are drying and there is no place for plates!

This house, this house...yes its our house....
It's a beautiful mess....

Follow us to the back door and gaze outside
