the house sleeps

there is a hum in the house in the daytime
a hum of life, a hum of comfort
the house breathes and listens with patience
holding this life high on broad shoulders
when the sun sinks beyond the edge of the world
the house sinks into airy silence
the life stills and the hum goes quiet
night creeps inside little by little
the house slumbers, solid like a shell
arms embracing those at rest within the walls
