National Poetry Writing Month, Poetry

front porch

i gaze upon tattered grace of former glory

threadbare shadows sway with thoughts unspoken

storm bent boards sag beneath dreams neglected

faded paint wears footprints from names unremembered

worn wood caresses hand-prints in memories abandoned

i sigh unspoken wishes for dreams restored



edited to add this Haiku after the front porch was restored:

Peace reigns on the porch 
Swaying in the summer breeze 
Wishful dreams restored
