For years and years, in dreamtime,
I have dreamed of living in a Spanish
Revival house. Only this particular house,
despite having the correct architectural style
and historical significance,
truly reveals itself in what lies behind
the interior walls, a complete inner
world that even outdoes the façade
that is this unique structure.
Sure enough, the main floor ambience
is strongly established in the grand Mission
Revival fireplace and further enhanced
by the synchronicity of both curves and arches.
Beginning our tour of the interior world
behind the interior, the living room sets
a softer tone with richly colored handmade
tile surround from Mexico, framing the fireplace.
I imagine your head, as mine, is spinning doing
mind cartwheels, pirouettes, and head over heels
jumping to conclusions, all in a feigned attempt
to comprehend this house within a house.
The only solution to this conundrum
of interior within the interior,
is this: to humbly invite you
to join me in dreamtime,
and be prepared for the grand tour.
