Awaiting experience
To bring it to life

Memories linger
A child’s remembered laughter
And echoing ghosts

A place for lovers
Eyes closed in a final kiss
Recalling the first

An empty canvas
Worn by life and scarred with age
Wears its history

Unfinished stories
Eternally unfolding
In an empty room

For Sacha’s 52 word challenge

    Looks pretty non-empty: I consider tatters shown on the walls to be features.

    What is “emptiness,” anyway?
