There is a sighing in the trees
all gathered round the ruined house;
a leaning in towards the shattered roof
and silent, breathless rooms.
Been gone these thirty years, that old grey man.
Died all alone, behind these windows thick with dust
and cobwebbed quiet.

The old wind knocks and keens.
Invites each passer by to stay a while
and make a little space for pity.
Over the years the wind has gathered in
a multitude of unsuspecting mourners,
marking the old manís passing.


A shot of another place in ruins found this afternoon. This shot was taken through a very dusty window which explains the hazy quality of the image Smile Places like this always get me thinking about who lived there and how the house came to be abandoned.

Same effect on me - Who lived there? What went on in that room over the years? Where are they now?

Once again a beautiful narrative , you have a fixation with death, there is some beauty in what you write though.

Thank very much for visiting Smile Interesting. Not a fixation as such, but an awareness of how short life is. How transient things are. Perhaps that's it.
