The Little Yellow House.
Artwork by Alja Horvat.
I’ve always been fine saying goodbye until today when saw my house from the sky.
The one in the neighbourhood behind the refinery.
First I spotted the Alzheimer’s home where our neighbours live now, and traced my way down the airplane window.
I travelled down until I saw the little yellow house in the middle of the street.
My face got hot and my eyes blurred with tears.
I’ve been coming and going for the better part of a decade
but this was the first time I had ever spotted the little yellow house from the sky.
