50 years later

Peace was found smoldering,
like an aging hippie
whose fire had gone cold.

Notes: This past Saturday I had the opportunity to visit with friends at their farm in the hills of Southwest Virginia. Exploring  the abandoned home on my friends property was an unexpected sojourn into wondering. Who were these people? What stories would four children who grew up in a two bedroom home, with running water in the kitchen and two fireplaces for heat and acres and acres of land? 

This piece was prompted by the thought that the last fire in this fireplace probably occured in the late 1960's.

A thick layer of dust rose into the air; 
a feeble attempt to subdue long ago conversations.
