Forgotten

A forgotten home along the Palouse inspired me to think of my Grama and her sisters and of the many truths to be found if we just listen

Forgotten

Memories fade to sepia

Ida, Elva, Grace and Bea

Laughter rang, now silence looms

Ida, Elva, Grace and Bea

Unlock the past, learn to be free

  1. Always saddens me to see abandoned homesteads. 😕

      • Living in the country like we do, there’s plenty around us as well. For that matter, our house was one of them. Nobody had lived in it for years til we bought it. Sad, to think that at one time they were vibrant, bustling homes with kids and families, then just given up to the elements. Make for fantastic photo ops though.

          • Not sure what anyone else thinks of it, but we love it. I think most of our friends thought we were crazy to take on an old place, remodeling, and a farm. But, I wouldn’t live in town anymore. I’d be claustrophobic at this point. 😃

          • I love it, and I grew up in the city. But once I met my wife, then started going to her dads farm, I fell in love. As soon as we could, we started looking for a place. This was it.

          • That is really cool! I grew up in a city, not that big but larger and my mom grew up in a town of about 800. So now we live up the road from that cute town! I love country life.

  8. One can be sad that the place is abandoned or happy for the love it felt once and hopeful that we won’t be abandoned nor need to abandon a place that we love … this is a really super piece, Lynn and I LOVE it! xx

  12. Your words pull at heartstrings. Sometimes when I see homesteads like this, abandoned, I always wonder about the life lived within its walls.

  14. I love the poem! When I see an abandoned home, barn or old building, I always wonder why. In Georgia, you can be one mile out of a city and there is an old abandoned barn or structure sitting very close to the road. I see this frequently and I am curious as to why they are not torn down.
