The Old Home In The Field
I take a lot of pictures when we travel. We like to get off the interstate and see places we have never seen before. These pictures were taken south of Vail, Colorado on a rainey day in May, 2003. While we were there we wondered who built the house and what their lives were like. It was a different world then.
The old home in the field
The wood home stood alone in the field
Roof fallen in
Built from timber carried from the forest
For a family
Many years ago before the road was paved
A garden was planted
The crumbling home is unsafe now
Returning to the earth
What is no longer needed
No longer used
Wildflowers grow near the falling walls
Receiving the gift of life
From the decaying timber
And the reflection
In the broken mirror
