My husband and I often drive by this place. It is both sad to see and yet, there seems to be promise somewhere in there. Live hands us many things, what we do with them is up to us. 🙂 I choose to make magic when I can.
Have an awesome week everyone!!
The House & Barn
The world encroaches upon them
The decrepit old house and barn.
Despite their seeming neglect,
Smoke spews fourth from the chimney,
Old cars, truck and even a boat,
Almost as decrepit in nature,
Fill the open yard
And half fallen barn.
Cars whip by,
Many apparently have not seen,
The little run down house
And obviously falling down barn.
Both struggling to hold onto a world,
That has long passed them by,
Very much left them far behind.
Despite all this,
There seems to be much promise there,
In the windows and things seen
From a road that now slips by
Allowing the world to encroach
Upon an old decrepit house and barn.
