on the side of the road


::

one day
life 
hung out 
here

hens
cackled

cows 
mooed

horses
whinnied

daily chores
performed

today
rust
resides
here

creating
its own
timeworn
beauty

on
the side
of the road

  16. What a beautiful old place this is, Jill.
    We have so many like this here, and I often wonder what happened that they were so neglected.

    Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  17. That is a beautiful picture with evocative word accompaniment. I have seen several in Cobb and Paulding counties but every time there was a car right behind me and I could not stop.
