deja vu

DSC00350

I knew this place nestled in the trees, it came back to me, a very distant memory

The closer I got, the stronger the story line, from a time way before I walked this earth.

The trees were not as mature, in fact  most, except the one, were but  seedlings in the ground

“Father farmed the land for miles around.  The nearest neighbour was a day away, unless of course, it was a Sunday, and we could hitch the horses to the small cart.  We would all dress in our Sunday best to ride into the closest settlement, otherwise, we spent our days  tending to chores and learning to read by candlelight, once all animals had been bedded and we could rest before we ourselves had to head up the stairs to bed.”

I couldn’t resist a look inside, sure enough the stairs were still there, but somehow the rest of the living area had been taken down and left to be dealt with another day.  I did consider going in, to see if I could still see out the window, from outside, I saw it was still there.

Reality is, it was another time, and the youngster who grew up there, was long gone. The world has vastly changed, and now, this home that was, sits alone in an isolated little woodland, on the edge of big farming complex.

The windows of the past, that we encounter today, fascinate and intrigue me.  Similar to the interest I have in doors, doorways and entryways, the questions, the storylines, the hazy visions into what was, could have been, or could be………..  never cease to delight and titillate my creative cells.

life is a journey of discoveries

to be savoured 

and enjoyed

Sounds of Silence #2

DSC00100

drawn like a moth to a flame

your silence called out to me

I knew, I needed a closer look

unlike in the books

my heart didn’t race

in fact, of emotion there was little  trace

just the desire to get closer

my steps were sure as if

as if, somehow I knew

we had met before

DSC00104

the years had aged you

 your tenants not always kind

there was not a blind

to hide your scarred and broken

parts inside.

you did your best,

you really did

sometimes, it really doesn’t matter

for life moves on

and you are left

not bare, but silent

the memories of what was

still visible on your face

DSC00101

you’ve left the door open

for what will be, will be

you’ve come this far

at night under the stars

you’ll sleep the gentle sleep

of one who has loved

knowing, love will always be

the sound of silence

is a living memory

love is never lost

love IS
