Ode to a Dilapidated Outbuilding

This is about a building on our property that I have looked at for 9 years but never really considered until today.IMG_1837

The insurance company- philistines, all- they said to demolish it or burn it, preferably both, but what do they know of beauty.


Who knows what your weathered wood has seen?


I can feel your textures with my eye.


I can touch the past in your walls.


I can wonder at the mysterious, rusted things.

timeworn… ghostly… and strangely comforting.
