Thursday photo prompt: Derelict #writephoto

PHOTO PROMPT © J Hardy Carroll

The tendency of an old house to collapse
Out of warren of walls, roofs and alleys
Tough seeing the neighbourhood with all scraps
Like crushing a vertebra when one sneezes
Uncanny way of a strand as it snaps
Can still catch some of its derelict beauties
Life is not exactly a barrel of laughs
To make reforms, we need money and graphs*

  1. I take it you used the photo for two (3) different prompts…nice going! I wonder what was happening before it was abandoned. I really like this poetry form ..it is quite easy for me. Thanks.
