Featured Poem on Write With Pictures

Last Friday, my poem won featured post on Write With Pictures. This is the prompt that inspired me.

White farmhouse, red barn
Trees and fields surround
Bulwark against the world

Generations come and go
Always coming home
White farmhouse, red barn

A field turns from crops to sports
And yet
Trees and fields surround

Storm clouds threaten
The farmhouse guards the family
Bulwark against the world.
