the farm house

the farm house

A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

thoughts of you -- re-edited as a stand alone poem

"
it sits,
white siding peeling,
a little worn,
but beautiful,
just the same;
its back to the road
that wasn't there
when it began.
defiant,
standing against
the world
and all its plans --
a lot like
you and me.

A great contrast indeed! I can relate to the old barn. I grew up on an old farm with a barn that I often played in. Great work!

Your welcome.
I love the way you introduce the farm house as the central image for a long-standing relationship that endures, despite all the changes in the world around it. I also enjoy & relate to the "love talk" as each discusses how expectations were this, but life gave us that. The only thing I'm missing is some tie-back to the farm house (an awesome analogy), to leave this lasting image of how love endures.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I do so enjoy the artful presentation of your work.
Every one of us have a heart with wear and tear from heartache and disappointment... but it only takes two broken hearts to make a whole one.

The first part of the poem makes me think of when I drive n the country I look at the abandoned farms and picture what it was like back in the day.

My pleasure. :)
I almost this this should be a series of poems to show your love story.
I like the first part so much- I wish it was on a different page than the rest- which you kinda did with the format.
I defiant love with peeling paint- rustic and beautiful these barns are. :)
