Wordle 131: The Abandoned House

Today’s words for The Sunday Whirl were definitely challenging.


The Abandoned House

the vacant brick house
a rickety fence covered
with old notices encloses
a yard filled with an
amalgam of trash spreading
like tentacles away from
the door, flowing across
the gravel driveway.
Abandoned years ago
the house leaves nothing
of its story, everything
of value stripped away,
cheating the scavengers.
A robin flies to her nest
balanced on a window sill
and drops a wiggling worm
into her baby’s open mouth.
