Favorite Quote:
"Man has his will- but woman has her way" Oliver Wendell Holmes

Spider webs act as corner friends above the dusted door
As plants cling to the siding like reunited friends
Faulty shutters wave hello leisurely
While ancient shingles dance in greeting

Tall grass shrivels toward the crumbly earth floor
As weeds take over like angry tyrants
Old stepping stones left behind say goodbye apathetically
While a once-new house finds sadness in leaving

An abandoned house inspired me to write this.
