A Stone: One daily observation
This morning is full of excitement! The air is chilled, it seems the first day of autumn.
My favorite time of year, my favorite time of life.
Magpie #81 Abandoned Farm
Framed against the setting sun
The old farm house
Barn and out-buildings
Remains of the day
Lived in honest toil
Close to the earth
A rhythm of seasons
Aunt Maggie and Uncle Fred
Owned the farm just outside of town
They moved to town
They had earned the right
It was the winter of their lives
Bandy and bend
With her strong arms
The farm was abandoned

Nice stone! Our air today is VERY chilled as well. Two days ago it was 85. Now, brrrrrr.
think i would rather roll back to the farm…and visit the city on occassion…
I agree… but would we want to work that hard? Perhaps it’s a better place to visit? Thanks for your comments. Annell Livingston HC 74 Box 21860 El Prado, NM 87529

Love your stone… we have the clouded skies of autumn, but are expecting summer to linger around 100 today.
Love the abondoned reflections of farm life. Passed down and beyond moments.
This is one of my Annell favorites! Fall is my time of the year too ….
The story of a great many farms…
Such a true and sad commentary upon how we live.
Sorry – I read Bandy as Randy and the solemnity of the words was shattered!! LOL
Abandonment is always sad…
A sad thing to leave the farm. I see so many abandoned houses on the rural oads these days. Not a good thing, I think.
