The vines crept through the window,
Tentative, curious,
They stretched their stems to touch green
But it was not moss or grass.
The air was not clean, or fresh,
Spent, dirty and soiled,
Ashes littered remnants of human living,
Beauty and elegance now spoiled.
A careless discarded cigarette,
Deep slumber after sated desire
Left twisted embers, melted shapes,
Engulfed in tongues of fire.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Good response Di. I feel I have been a room such as you describe.
