The Address Remembers

Rating: 5.0
The door remembers
the layers of bottle green paint
the brass-bulled letterbox
the glittering granite steps
the rhododendron bush
the shining number plate

The hall remembers
the echoes reaching the ceiling
the spider webs around the hanging lights
the coats stand with Zulu knobkerrie

The shed remembers man things- tools and screws a place for everything everything in its place The garden walls remember studs of purple flowers disembodied voices of the neighbours the world kept at bay - - - - - - All the things around the house have some stories to tell.A stunning write about fond memories of childhood.

If you live in a house for a long period of time, you get attached to the house. Each part of the house, the door, the hall, the rooms are all filled with memories. Even objects in the house have a story to tell. Beautifully written. Congratulations Sheena!
