Bricks and Mortar

bricks and mortar, glass and steel
are the things of structure
sconces and chandeliers, and even candles
bring light to dark corners
plants and paintings, sculptures too
lend beauty to the place
chairs and couches and tables of food
bring comfort and conversation

but all will shake
and fall to pieces
if the pilings are not sunk
deep into the bedrock of love

Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain – Psalm 127:1, NIV


for dVerse, where we are using poetry to construct buildings
