Coming Home
June 10, 2013


It was settlement day,

The keys were newly in my hands,

I entered the empty house stripped of its finery  by the previous owners and opened the rear glass door,

The buddleias in the garden were aflutter with butterflies,

Delicate perfume flowed into the living room

Followed by a butterfly

Welcoming me home.

I began moving into this house in Castlemaine on the 5th of April.  Living in Castlemaine has felt like a home coming.


My pets, Spotty, the dog and  the two cats, Arlo and Belle, have adapted readily to their new surroundings.
