Old House

   bright yellow
siding, hanging
as a protective
      shell on this
beautiful relic,

      cared for
   these days
by a non-profit

   a thing of
beauty in an
oblivious world.

      it's so easy to 
look and dream
a place like this
   might be ours,

      a place with
such a garden,
so much beauty,
   and history.

  1. Wonderful how communities fashioned their lives, surely for the good or better living, no wonder these relics are preserved by non-profits.
    This is how I imagined and visualized the home based care centers should look like. A warm and attractive place to visit and a centre to meet and move out into the community.


      1. Yes HBC as they are commonly known mushroomed out of a great need for support and care. But the thinking in design behind these care centres was just narrow, actually backward.
