Home Delivery – A Poem

Four a.m when early morning is still in house slippers,

And Dawn readies her diamond dew drop sparklers.

Large flashing lights glow like incandescent sunrise,

Flooding windows and patios in disco ball surprise.

A chorus of patio doors unsheathe in musical ensemble

As onlookers creep from sleep to witness the spectacle.

An entire pre-fab house creeps on an epic transport;

Its megatron oversize load a delivery for an empty lot.

The driver and spotters chorusing back and forth,

Negotiate the narrow turn to the home’s final birth.

The transport driver maneuvers with epic ingenuity

Up onto the sidewalks, avoiding, inexplicably,

Garbage cans, street signs and fire hydrants

A fitting odyssey like Jason and the Argonauts,

A breathtaking one hour of forward and reverse

Patience and uneasiness; then, finally, the house

Was delivered safely home.

      1. Hey Suzette, neato Poem. Thank you for liking my post on “Out with the Past”….It is nice to see all my old writer friends still active and Writing…..I have been so busy fixing up my old log cabin I have not had time to think of writing, but we are almost done now, ready for another Alaskan Winter, so on these long winter nights I will try to think of interesting things to write about…..Looking forward to your next Poem…..P.S. one of my friends tells me he has the Big Amazon deliver T.P. Right to his front door, and I asked him “How about supporting our LOCAL business, because if you do not support them they will close their doors and then what happens if the ships cannot deliver that butt wipe?” I shop 99.9 local myself, so what if it costs a few pennies more? I know all the business owners and anything I want they will order for me, and I get to meet all the neatest people, working people who know my name and talk to me, instead of ordering crap from a robot…..So it is all good for me…..

      2. So great to hear from you again. Glad you are set for winter. And yes, I do my best to shop local but I could do better. You make a valid point there. Blessings and peace to you. Have a great weekend.


  1. So funny… our house was a move-on house, though it looked nothing like the one pictured – was a an old one from a lot about to be rebuilt – so a lot more shabby. ;)). You describe the process brilliantly. And there you are, Dawn, in your dew-drop sparklers, writing about it, merrily. :)) πŸ™ŒπŸ’–
