⌗WEEKEND WRITING-Ramshackle- A Yard so Beautiful


If you’d like to join or know more visit Sammi at sammi’s scribbles

This week

How could a plain yard be so beautiful ?

A ramshackle of objects tumbled

from each, every room

of this foreboding house.

A four-post bed stripped of varnish,

mould creeping up its legs

saw the births of George, Ann, Terry,

Benjamin, Gloria; the deaths

of a parson, a banker, a billionaire.

An imposing Ming vase: a lovers’ bridge,

a dragon spitting fire from a rocky ledge;

a wooden dolls’ house, an exact replica,

complete with furniture, right down to a cracked

enamel washbasin, a rugged counter

with a grey plaster fish.

All strewn across memories

below falling snow.

Thanks for reading.
