I saw an empty house today
stripped back
soulless, I thought.
They took its windows and doors away
and it stared at me
with sightless eyes.
Was there the sorrow of losing something?
Or the joy of resurrection,
I couldn’t see.
The new house owners came with a project
and walked through the sightless eyes in.
And then I saw a gaze of hope
twirling between the walls,
maybe those eyes were not sightless at all,
just temporarily blank?
