Aside

time stood still

In the empty house by the beach

Gentle wind’s caressing her dusty drapes

Making shadow play at the corner of the living room

Salty scents wafting through- mingling with mustiness of yesterday

A peculiar calmness that can’t be defined lends a charming air 

Rattan furniture of the 70’s lounging comfortably together from years of brotherhood 

Rolled up rugs adorning the wooden floor occasionally beg for a good stretch

Paperbacks snuggling closely on the overstuffed bookshelf have resigned peacefully to their fate

It’s been a while for life to be a part of this house 

Despite it all, she is content and grateful for what she has 

Even the stoic grandfather clock not wishing to move past 3
