SoCS — The Little House

The little house

lies forlorn and forgotten.

Surrounded by undergrowth 

on all four sides.

Trees extend branches

like sinewy forearms,

forming a  canopy

above the roof.

It was a weekend retreat,

for an elderly couple 

who are no more.

Now it lies there

neglected and abandoned.

Unwanted by their kids.
