Haiku for a friend

Can you see a date ghosting on the bricks between the two upper windows?  I can't but I'm looking for it.  Many houses from this time period had the date written in bricks on the end, just in case they forgot when they built it.....not really.  This is the western end gable.  Kinda forlorn, eh?

Looking for new life.....

Windows removed, wood restored.  Waiting for some new windows to go in (Anderson, custom built on top), and some old rebuilt windows too (lower four windows). Waiting.  Cleansed.

                                                           At peace light contained
                                                       Sunrise warm open sky here
                                                         House now growing heart
