Home Tours and Haiku

Home Tours and Haiku From Designer Marsie Surguine

Aside from her many talents in the design realm…our very own Designer Marsie Surguine is a whiz with Haiku! She can rattle off a Haiku in the time that it takes most of us to type a subject line on an email. She finds inspiration everywhere and most recently, she shared some of her gems she created in response to the last two home tours we completed. She even has photos to go along with them!

For those of you (like myself) who need a “Haiku refresher” the Haiku is a traditional Japanese poem that consists of seventeen syllables broken up in three lines with a 5/7/5 syllable count by line.

Enjoy Marsie’s thoughts in Haiku!

Standing on the mat,
Amy shows the clever way
to avoid puddles.

From its’ lofty perch,
the toilet paper awaits,
Ready to refuel.

Hanging high above,
The glowing orbs light the space,
both art and decor.

In a camouflage,
the outlet is functional,
but also discreet.

A cubby for you,
and cubbies for mom and dad,
and one for me too!

More daylight enters,
the once dark ’70s kitchen,
thanks to new doors!

With even more space,
the kitchen invites us in,
to cook many things.

Thanks to Jessica Letaw, Marsie Surguine, and Sean Carter for the photos!
