Poetic Thursday: Abandoned

Welcome to Thursday…. in case you’re like most of us, and aren’t sure what day of the week it is.

As usual, I’m participating in Poetic Thursday, hosted by Pam and her boys at Two Spoiled Cats.

This our photo inspiration for today:

And here’s my poem:

Abandoned

It seemed a good idea: the development was a “go”;
each home to resemble a French chateau.

But then, the unexpected happened,
and now the property sits abandoned.

Perhaps there will be a day
when somehow, new life comes its way.

Homes no longer empty, neighbors as friends;
needed: an investor with billions to lend.

Pam gave us some info on this ‘ghost town’, located in Turkey. It’s fairly new, just built in 2018, but it seems the developers ran into some financial difficulty after building this $200 million project. If you’d like to read more about and see additional photos, click here.

Have a good weekend, everyone. ‘Stay healthy, take care of your selfie’.
