Brown Place Revisited

Brown Place

The house no longer stands
on the corner of Brown Place
where it was the happiest once
It succumbed
from loneliness
Someone torched it
to put it out of its pain
leaving behind a few remnants
The old cyclone fence
still hangs in there
to protect
the memories we've forgotten
Dad's favorite shrub survived somehow
Mom's stone bench
covered with green moss
Reminisces about the good
old times
The landscape carpeted
with shattered pieces
of the hopes
that once lived there
let the dandelions
sprout and squeeze...
