Bay Windows

Basilica colonnades that curve like arms
and seem to hold you in a warm embrace
are wonderful, but home too has such charms
in walls not square but bending at their base,
like walls of my bay windows turn to me
at angles as of arms instead of straight,
so in them as in colonnades I see
this welcoming, delight-inducing trait.
A wall can act as more than ceiling brace:
the curves of architecture can embrace.
