The Folly
The Folly – Image by KL Caley

For visually challenged writers, the image shows an almost symmetrical brick folly with gothic style arched doorways at either side.

Roaming spirits are grateful
For the foolish notions of the living
If it were not so, they would have 
Nowhere to rest, to live for a while
Those wonderful structures
With their arched windows
Give old memories a new lease of life
If you find a fallen leaf on your doorstep
You have been invited 
to sit at their fire that night
They will allow 
a small glimpse of their time
In the space you created 
at the end of your garden
Where nature grows wild
You have one chance 
to capture their image
Look for the space between
Where time ends…
