Reclaimed – #writephoto

derelict.png

 

Dilapidated.

Crumbled walls, rotten rafters,

Exposed, derelict,

Structure reclaimed by Nature;

Cosy cottage no longer.

 

Amongst the ruins

Varied wildlife seeks shelter:

Birds on beams, dormice,

Insects in the undergrowth;

Not a house, yet still a home.

A bit of a rushed tanka so not my best, but written in response to Sue Vincent’s interesting and expressive #writephoto Derelict prompt. Thanks once again Sue!
