The Abandoned House in Winter

For Real Toads – Today while driving through the country, I spied an abandoned house. The snow is almost gone but still, it froze the blood in my veins. http://withrealtoads.blogspot.com/2017/12/micro-poetry-fire-and-ice. I am also posting this on Poets United, Poetry Pantry.

The Abandoned House in Winter
The white sky –
The unbroken snow on the ground –
The sepia trees behind the abandoned house
outlined in dark brown like a drawing by a child –
I have never seen such a cold looking place –
So desolate –
Bare black trees in the foreground –
Windows defeated and blank –
So cold so cold –
The fire on the hearth went out years ago
