A wide meandering path

leads to an abandoned

great house.  An iron gate,

twisted with rust, separates

the perimeter of the property

from the outside world.

Debris of various sorts lay

scattered on the weed infested

lawn along with seasons of

leaves and broken branches.

Half buried prehistoric boulders,

the other half in China, rise from

the uneven front yard.  Wild

vines crawl over lifeless paint.

A few yard tools rest on the

front porch.  A less than

intimidating “no trespassing”

sign hangs tilted on a side door.
