Poetry Friday

Fixer-Upper

by Terry Webb Harshman

 

Some houses look scary,

abandoned

and bleak,

 

 

 

 

with windowpanes broken

and shutters

that creak,

 

 

 

with lawns unattended,

and porches

in shambles,

 

 

 

and overgrown gardens

of thistles

and brambles.

 

 

 

 

But don’t look upon them

with fear

or disdain;

they just need the love of

a family

again.
