Haiku – Home and Weep ~ 6/7/21

Blueprints hold the key

Sadness of missing weep holes

Can damage brick homes

Written for Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 361 HOME and Weep.

Alrighty. This is not as good as I had hoped but time is of the essence. Self-imposed due dates to a voluntary prompt. That’s just how I roll. LOL :). I immediately thought what part of a house can weep? B is a contractor so I’d heard the term before. I thought maybe windows weep. Guess they can but when I googled my question, the masonry weep hole answer popped to the top of the list. Since I have had enough “home is where the heart is” crying to last me a life time, I went the direction above. Happy Monday folks!!

As always, more to come.

  1. LOL! I watch a show called “Holmes on Homes.” He is a contractor who goes around repairing houses which has supposedly passed inspection but still had horrible flaws. Failure to include proper drainage for rainwater was one of the most common issues and caused massive problems down the road.

    I’ve learned a lot about what to look for and how to build a home that will last from that show. That includes weep holes.
