This fertile womb lies still in wait.
Void of motion, sound and love;
A lonesome space of plaster and brick.
Worn carpets and marked walls
That surround this shell,
Are signs of seed now grown and gone.
This cell has served a family well.
More fruit within this void shall swell.

    Another view of your work that says it just a few short lines, I can grasp the emptiness of the rooms, and yet the memories that linger in each wall. What a wonderful glad I found this one! :)
