where we stay, are they called houses or homes?
houses, there are so many, some even with domes!
a home where we live and raise a family?
it is in the house where we sleep and watch T.V.
is confusing sometimes to know this or that,
it a house or a home where I hang my hat?
suppose this question is trivial to some,
is it into a house or a home where friends are welcome?
it’s only in houses we live, what of other places too?
homes in apartments are plenty, but castles are few.
houses are called manufactured homes to live in,
there’s mobile homes called trailers that you can take to see your kin.
abound on golf courses and putting greens,
are homes on the seas, if within your means.
folk find home anywhere they can spin a yarn,
But as far as
I’m concerned, I could live in a barn.
barn has all the comforts to make it a home,
walls and ceilings it’s just like palaces of Rome.
cow and the donkey are always close to me,
guard, watch, and give warning with a ‘Haw’ or a ‘Hee’,
bed and pillow made from harvested straw,
all I need to complete this picture I draw.
have a home, most people expect a lot of frills and charm,
comfortable to just live in a barn.
that night long ago, the shepherds were first to hear,
Savior was born for them, on this midnight clear!
a place with straw, in a manger He was sleeping,
into His house, believers came worshipping and weeping.
child, they knew, as I do now, was the world’s new start,
unto me He was born, and made a home in my heart.
removed me from the house made of this world’s harm,
And showed me
that One greater than all, once lived in a barn.
A Barn by Ronhales 2 Corinthians 5:8
