Front Door—HAIKUS and BEFORE and AFTER:

A front door is a statement—a haiku poem, if you will—about a house and the residents inside.  Here are two haikus—a BEFORE and an AFTER— I wrote on our front door.  

BEFORE: The flimsy Front Door of The House the day we bought it.

Oh thin, plywood door
Hollow as a cold coffin
Full of white-washed bones

DURING: Mr. Wonderful installing the new door himself!  Uh-huh.

AFTER: The new Front Door--solid mahogany wood. 

Hard wood, solid sound
Welcome friends, vintage style
Craigslist price makes me smile.
