There is a door set in the wall – it is closed
on each side it is flanked by a window, shut tight
the moss on the cement blocks leading to the door,
suggests that the steps have been there for awhile
how many times have the window panes been kissed by the rain
just when did the house fall silent
are there finger prints on the windows, of children looking out
If I knock, will someone come to the door
The house is so small and still, I can see right through to the back door.
just waiting for some kind of response .. I feel the house shift
it has been awhile, but it can still hear echos of its former lives
it sits silently aware that for a brief moment in time, someone came to visit
standing proud, it feels good, once more it served a purpose and was rewarded with a moment of appreciation.
Old homes, buildings, fences, cars, trucks, they are reminders that life is fragile, and fleeting, now more than any other time, is not the time to squander the joys of living, the true meaning of friendships, and genuine caring and understanding of the people, communities around us.
It is important to say “thank you” Everything that appears in front of you is all material for you to improve yourself whether its food, people or things. Learn to accept everything, whether it is something you like or not.Perfect Liberty 2020.9
