The roof

Odd the things we worry about. We take care of the things we can. The rest we leave to nature. Of course this does not mean we don't worry about nature. 

We will travel.
A neighbor will watch
The house
To ensure
It does not
Burn down.
The cats
Will spend time
At the vet’s.
The turtle
Will be
With our son.
We pray for no rain
Like the rain
We have had
The last three days.
We pray for the roof.
We pray the house
Will be here
When we return.
No fire.
No water.
We know
The living things
Are cared for.
But the house
The house!
The roof!
Oddly the roof.
Not even the basement.
But the roof.
