The small shanty had once been the center of a vibrant and growing family, providing warmth and protection to all those who graced its floors. Laughter and Love and the patter of small feet echoed insides its walls, but that is now long gone. As the years passed the children moved on one by one until there were none.
The prairie winds blow effortlessly unfettered by the shattered windows. The silence is only occasionally interrupted by the sad creak of hinges as the door slowly works free of the frame. The house is slowly dying along with the dreams of the once proud builder. Time passes and people move on, the forgotten building stands alone, left behind.
