'Kissing the Ceiling'

In response to a photo prompt from We Write Poems:

 ~Kissing the Ceiling~

Just wait and see, for failure you’re bound,
He calls it home?  A hole in the ground?
It gets no light, the paint is surely peeling,
You stand up straight, and bump into the ceiling!

Oh let them talk, I know where I am bound,
It’s nice and bright – our home beneath the ground,
The paint’s just fine, and overcome with feeling,
At break of day I rise, and kiss the ceiling!

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur


  1. ...another person's treasure. Nice job!

  2. happiness right where you are. Well done.

  3. I'm good with it.
    Just a question: what's "painy's"? paint? or counterpane? (I thought that quilt was beautiful)

    1. Hi, Barbara, it should be "paint's" (paint is ) :-)
      Sometimes the computer can play tricks.
