let me show you what I covet
see if you can feel the love left in the remains
the drooping and crumbling front porch roof will soon be just a memory
the glass panes in the windows and doors
surrendered years ago
baseboards and moldings still carry a shade of blue~green that only love could have colored
in the kitchen stood
this beautiful cabinet
I shrug my shoulders
here I go again with another adventure slightly into and around an amazing house not too far from us. it's the same house I found this winter, but with the blowing snow I couldn't get close enough to really see it...do you remember ?
this time, after reading the bold yellow posted signs that said "keep out" on the fence, we kept walking towards it...with hurried steps.
john was with me and we laughed at ourselves wondering just how quickly the authorities could get there if indeed someone "called us in"
with a little mischievous smile on my face
and an immediate attitude of "I'm on a mission"
all he said was "shoot fast"
the house was big and amazing with old steps outside leading down into a cellar that was even too scary for me...this time
there was a huge empty well that went to no man's land, that I could have fallen into since I had my camera glued to my face and wasn't paying attention to where I was walking, but I didn't
and on a little side porch off the kitchen where I stood to take some of the inside photos, had a falling roof on posts that weren't attached to anything, that once again, hubby being on the look out for my safety, pointed out how unstable it looked and suggested that I might not want to stand there very long, because with my luck, today would be the day it would decide to cave all the way in, so I moved.....sometimes he's such a weenie
but I love him for accepting the rebel side of me and following me into the places that in his rule book say "off limits"
so once again I feel this need to find, document and photograph these houses
I don't know what is, but I swear they call my name
