Making a House/Making a Home
Joris John Heise
Saws groan their shrill spill of spinning power,
Hammers whack-smack-smack on nails, blowered heat
Creates cold wood towards cozy, womb-y rooms.
What sat as hole becomes a growing cell
Of a family’s future beauty, fun and joy—
A nest of truth, a pause of common love.
Beyond what eyes see, faith constructs it all—
A context weaving new births of greater worth;
Its members’ true talks are prayers toward playful peace.
A sharing in an unseen Jesus here
Can shape and re-shape bias, forgiveness, bread
Into huge glory, sun-smiles—being born-ahh!
