Very nice. This brought back memories of some of the adventures my brother and I had in our house-turned… whatever the order of the day was.

Wow….truly impressive work on this! I love the meter of this and these lines "then a house is just a portal where adventure has begun!"are awesome! I like the all lower-caseness of this! :)

This poem definitely had to have been written from personal experience. Isn't it amazing what an ordinary home, coupled with a wild imagination can do for children?

I can see that your imagination has stayed with you into adulthood, and it is a big part of why I think you come up with such fun and original stories (or in this case poems). :)
