The House on Basin Street

The house on Basin Street has a back yard dressed in Eleanor Tabor. Front yard, Sonata Spring. They called this curb appeal. My woman wore a bodycon sweater dress, belted waist. This they called curve appeal. I'm beginning to learn the laws of nature, there are two kinds of winds; a hurricane blew shingles backward, the house stayed with me. My woman walked out of our abode, a kind zephyr carried her hair backward, she broke embankment, swept away in a loud outpouring and was never seen again.

I like the use of “Curb Appeal”, yes, there is a difference between a hurricane in which I hope I am never in, and the gentle feel of a zephyr breeze. Enjoyed reading , Francis. Stay health and safe and may your pen keep you active.
