Ruth Long Week 109: Condemned

Ruth Long’s Picture Choice: 1

Title: Condemned

A farmhouse or country store
hard to tell any more
Planted along a wandering highway
once upright with pride
now cowering in shambles
rotting within and without

Splintered and bowed
by time and circumstance

Crumbling away beneath
the unrepentant sun
and overcome with weeds
that choke out even the
ghost of hope.
