The Porch

I bought this house for the porch,
open to the west toward the Pacific.
Ocean breezes curl above the railing
and nudge our windbell into song.
This neighborhood is a bit older
than I’d like (But then, so am I.)
Evenings I wrap myself in the quiet,
a security blanket worn thin by the years.
This old porch is more than concrete
