Recalling the Past
Memories come back
lost in the thicket of time
volatile writing on yellow paper
diary the past years
Background for this Poem:
For this poem I was inspired when I went for a walk across Zittau, Saxony. Unfortunately, this abandoned house was demolished about two years ago. The blur of this photo is wanted.
