A Barn

Wood griping soil
peak grasping sky
storage for being
shelter for beast

luxury then necessity
usable then adaptable
repairable then convertible
convenient then obstacle

leaning beyond return
slipping from memory
sliding into earth
forsaken forgotten friend.


  1. nice Linda- i love old barns.

  2. Hi Meredith, thanks, they're all from Arkansas, forgot to include one from my home back then.

  3. It looks like the Waltons...but then I have never been to the States so it is all celluloid to me. Really dreamy barns.

  4. Hi Kitty, a bit like the Waltons, there is much to see here, perhaps you'll visit one day, you are welcome to stay at my new home, once I find it.

  5. Love your words adn pictures here. If you want place, btw, to set up for ceramics, you need to stop by Northern Colorado and see Richard Devore--a world famous ceramicist who has two pieces in the British Museum representing 20th century ceramics. Incredible.

  6. nothing like an old barn

  7. mmm, thanks, and I will check it out on our way in about three weeks.

    Hi Jim, thanks,so true.
