Glad you stopped by, and hope you’ll return!)

Blogging from A to Z April (2010) Challenge - H

so old
100 years or more
a century of life happened here
under the shelter of a steep-pitched roof
housed within the safety of sturdy grey-block walls
unknowable numbers of inhabitants
adults, children, couples and families
dwelt in these rooms: laughed, cried
cooked and ate, played, entertained
sang, danced, lived, loved, then slept
gone now – yet in a way they remain
as spirits of memory and experience
oh, if only these four walls could talk
i would listen to their stories forever
