Wisdom hath built her house...Proverbs 9: 1

A homestead no longer lived in
May contain spirits of the past...
Who see it as it was back then....
Before time went by too fast!

Near the side of a country road...
It stands alone on a snowy field...
The only shelter against the cold
Are from the trees that shield...
Poetry by me AJP

I posted this picture earlier but I removed it and deepened the contrast for it to stand out even more...it was snowing and raining when we drove in the country to take our dog to the vet for her yearly vaccination shots earlier this month. This empty house no longer lived in happened to be on the way...The dog was on my lap but I quickly did a drive-by shot before we drove past..

    You are an expert at drive by shooting!!! This photo of the abandoned home is outstanding, if only the walls of this old house could talk, I wonder what it would say about being abandoned.

    Thank you everyone for the comments....The peacefulness of this scene spoke out to me in those few seconds I had to capture it as we were driving past. It has been a number of years
    since anyone lived there but it still holds its dignity through the passage of time.
