broken windows —
each empty house
someone's story

Perfect. I have often felt this way. The sight of such windows always makes me wonder how they came to be in such disrepair. I wonder about the human story.

When I was younger and braver, I often explored abandoned homes and places of business. So many ghosts. So many curiosities. Thanks for the reminder.

Oh so true! Wonderfully done. I love it when you can convey so much in so few words.

I love the stories that can be found in old houses (even if I have to make them up). Thanks for the poem.
