Ruins?

Broken windows
Shattered sunlight
long lost dreams&fallen walls
Failed ambitions
Dropped like plaster
Ghosts of children
Haunt the halls

      I read the first line and immediately Nina Simone singing 'I think its goin' to rain today' came to mind. this is a super haunting piece - going into my favourites

        Thank you. I got inspiration from the thene song of "Broken". Which i think is by Rabdy Newman,

        • Michael Edwards

          Yes - the same song: Broken Windows etc by Nina Simone which I think is by far the best version although many have sung it. Listened to it yesterday on YouTube

          Your few well chosen words speak volumes ... paint a nostalgic picture. I like this type of poem, well done, Garry!

          Good write, it says so much in so few words.
