Back Next Work

I want to mix sand with water to make cement
to put between red bricks o make a wall
joined by 3 others
then put on a roof and make a door and windows.
I want to do this on warm spring days
in country air with aromas of early childhood
In the evening I want to dream of the building
already done and the work for tomorrow.
