Old Barn

Worn and weary,

Way past your prime,

Still you shelter

All who need your space.

 

Ragged beauty,

Humble fortress

For a thousand moments

Of living and dying

 

A welcome smile

For the weary and the willing,

Succor within your stones,

Rest beneath your roof.

 

God bless this barn

And all who call her home.

Thank you Leah Yetter for letting your artwork grace today’s post.   Leah is a gifted photographer with an eye for capturing the spirit of whatever she photographs, in particular the natural beauty of Wyoming.  This barn has been in her boyfriend’s family for generations, and is a beloved building.  Can’t you sense that in the photograph? Take some time to enjoy her blog at http://leahyetter.wordpress.com/2013/03/27/barn-tour/
