first there was the door

                                                          
    it is hot 
   the house is in lockdown 
   the glasshouse is sealed off from the     
  lounge with thick ex british embassy   
  drapes.
  someone that used to be a friend got them .
  hard to imagine the brits in canberra  
  having a garage sale.
  maybe it was who you know knows  
  someone  and that someone said psst very 
  expensive thickly made blue swirls triple 
  lined are on the chuckout pile.
  they went to a house in canberra where 
  they were way too long for the windows.
  they are a 4m drop for crying out loud and 
  I knew as soon as I saw them that they had been made for our room .
       funny thing is when john was building the house from the ground up with mudbricks the walls had to be a certain height because  of a  door as in our front door. wooden  with a frosted glass window above  and in the middle of the frosting  a sword and shield. blue and gold perfect colours for the curtains that arrived many years down the track.  and that is why I call it a castle because of the height because of the sword and because it carries a medieval vibe about it.  mud walls mud floor secondhand windows and the beams sourced from this forest.
      a handmade house created lovingly over 2 years by John after he chucked in the city the business the bullshit and chose a life within nature.
