My response to Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo Thursday Photo Prompt – Mine -#writephoto

Sue Vincents Photo Prompt 14th July 2016

Green sheen

Of mould on wood

Colour wash

Of nature’s brush

The chimney’s cold

The roof is gone

Rainwater streaks

The solid stone

A ruined hearth

No warming fire

Just broken earth

Nettle and briar

    1. When I lived in the middle of nowhere in Ireland, many years ago, there was a ruined cottage on the land that belonged to the house we lived in. It still had everything in it after the family died of TB or something. There were still plates and things on the table, and there was a patina of green on the wood and the roof had caved in. Sue’s picture reminded me of it.
