She's Always Exploring ....at the old Farm House

For fellow hubber ~ Always Exploring

I reside here where no one ever comes
no one but the wind through empty rooms
Listening to the rain in the rusting gutters
trickling your name in garden blooms

Weeds where you're garden used to grow
and you're name carved in tree bark
Only once did a woman return and I called
you're name just before the dark

Jane.....Jane ... you have returned to me
but she did not hear
I spoke softley as she searched away.... she's
Always exploring though always near

I told her once ......go if you will.... but know
that I will always be your home
Maybe you're journey will return you
here ...... never again to roam

In her I saw you're golden hair and smile
just when she saw the flowers
Perhaps she'll return again .......
one day.....I pray to higher powers

She touched her fingers to the tree where your
name is etched eternally.........
And as I rested my hand on hers .......I felt you
again internally

Perhaps she will return again and again and
with closed eye's I can touch your hand
That always exploring will bring you home
to your house ....your home .....your land

"Always Exploring" wrote a poem about an abandoned farmhouse and her visit there , and this is what the ghost of the past told me to write to her........

Nice....at first I thought it was about Jane Eyre.

Nice job!!!

I see a trend recently on hubpages...where people are writing articles together, interviewing each other and now this. Fun stuff....

OMG, This is so beautiful. You gave my old house a voice and Jane must have gone another way, leaving her young love alone to forever search for her, romantic and very sad. Thank you my wonderful poet friend. I must go look at that old house again. Maybe i can hear the whispers in the wind........
