Anne’s Challenge- My Entry in Continuation of the poem titled The Shed!.

The Shed

Was walking down the road one day, when something caught my eye

So beautiful, miraculous, I smiled, and breathed a sigh

Twas only how the sunlight fell upon the trees ahead

Within a forest, deep and thick, and lit upon a shed

The shed was old and falling down, its roof had sunken in

I thought about that worn out shed, and what it might have been

My curiosity was stirred,  my longing to explore

Before I knew it, there I stood, before its faded door

Carefully, most cautiously, I twisted the old knob

The hinges squealed, with pain it seemed, as I felt my heart throb

With cobwebs woven everywhere,  my feet froze to the floor

I dared not take another step, but had to still see more

So I took one step and then two more

The light was really dim so I stepped away  from the door

I began to search for  some clues

In this old broken down shed filled with so many hues.

Someone had once loved this tiny little place

What could have happened here to fall so far from their grace

I dusted of the seat

All the while I tried to forget what was beneath my feet.

As I sat where I am sure they had

I began to feel so sad

All the paint splatters they left behind

On this makeshift table where they must have dined

I wanted to stay here

In the deep woods visited by many deer

It would take so much time

Blood Sweat and tears but then she could be mine.

  1. Anne wrote the first twelve lines and the title
    The challenge was to add no more than 20 lines and finish it ourselves
    Hers is so polished and I am just learning all over again
    though I had a photo of a rustic place I could have also added lol

  2. boomiebol you are too kind.
    Thanks for taking the time to check out my entry 🙂
    HUGS

    1. Thanks. I enjoyed this EXERCISE but it can take off and go in any direction but that was the fun I had with it but for me it will always be a place were an Artist sat and painted the world outside their window.
      I am more of a Story Teller for what a life I have lived this poem stuff I did when I was in 4th grade which trust me was so long ago 🙂
      Thanks for commenting it is how I will get better

      1. It will always be an artists shed to me from now on. How silly is it that I went off in that direction. I wish I had not been so worried about not going over my 20 Line lol

      2. It will always be an artists shed to me from now on. How silly is it that I went off in that direction. I wish I had not been so worried about not going over my 20 Line lol

        Again thanks so much

    2. Thanks so much.
      I really go with my gut as I am no Poet lol
      Her poem started so perfect with words but me I kept thinking no more than 20 LINES lol

    1. Awe thanks so much why did I go there probably says more about me than needed lol
      It will be forever an Artist’s Shed in my eyes. Where they would sit and paint the Wilderness and all she held.

    1. Thanks so much Anne
      I just wrote it simply
      I stated what was obvious to ME. lol
      Not as glowingly as you write but just trying
      to get the point across on the page and with-in 20 LINES lol

      1. I don’t know what you’re talking about, ‘glowingly’. 🙂 Thank you for the compliment, but I thought your finish was great! Thank you for playing along!

      2. Thanks Anne I just meant you are so polished and into your groove this is all new but I don’t know anyone lol so I will keep trying. Funny how each took on a life of it’s own thanks for letting us play in the challenge!
