sign of our times

condemmed

on a lovely tree lined street
surrounded by stately homes
a family once called this home
the kids that grew up here
went to school every morning
played Monopoly on the farmer’s porch in the summer
mom tucked them in bed every night
there were celebrations here
birthdays, anniversaries
a Christmas tree stood in the livingroom
and it’s lights shown bright through the front window every December
for years

until one day it all changed

at least that’s how I imagine it

in my mind

every time I pass by this house

  1. Wouldn’t it be lovely if a family moved in and made all this happen ā™„
    I don’t think it would take much to make it wonderful!

  2. That would be nice to see, Deb. It is for sale and if I were wealthy I’d buy it in a heartbeat! It’s fun to imagine what could be done to make this a home again.
