Whispering Wisteria

An abandoned house
not much to see
and yet the wisteria
called to me

a window
a room
a story
a host
surely somewhere
there must be a ghost


I see him.
Do you?

A little paint, a few throw pillows... and boom! Instant palace. Metaphorically speaking of course.

Hope you're feeling lots better today.

Beautifully eerie pictures Mimi. :)

Autumn said...

Bootiful!!

John said...

I don't see him but it looks pretty spooky. : )

Evocative post! Reminds me of an entertaining book I read about a decade ago -- The Hand I Fan With. Sometimes the hottest guys are the ones only we can see.

Thom said...

Nope I don't see him but the pictures are great

Jean-Luc Picard said...

No, I didn't see a ghost, but I did see Waldo/Wally

Tarheel Rambler said...

I LOVE pictures of old houses! Great pictures, Mimi, and I love the reflections to go with them.

Lorielle said...

Beautiful photos and words to go with them. I maybe see him maybe not. I see something, but it could be a shadow. :)

Dawn (Twisted Sister) said...

The photos are lovely!
My ghost radar is broken though... I'm never able to see them :(

Linda said...

A hauntingly beautiful post, Mimi, both in words and pictures.

Mojo - Took a long hot bubble bath and feel some better. It really helped. Thanks.

Mimi Lenox said...

Akelamalu - Eeeeerrie...bwaahhahaa

Mimi Lenox said...

Autumn - Boo back!!

Mimi Lenox said...

John - It was terrifying!!! I see him, I tell ya, I see him.

Mimi Lenox said...

Gal - He is really not a hot ghost. I wouldn't go out with him.

Mimi Lenox said...

"hot ghosts"...Gal...the blogosphere has quite the imagination. I love it!

Mimi Lenox said...

Thom - Maybe it's a her.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jean-Luc - Very funny, wiseguy...

Mimi Lenox said...

Lee - I thought of you when I posted this. I knew you would love it!

Mimi Lenox said...

Lorielle - Psss! He's beside the chimney....behind the tree...don't you see it?

Mimi Lenox said...

Katherine - It's so magical.

Mimi Lenox said...

Dawn - And I was counting on you to be my ghostbuster.

Mimi Lenox said...

Linda - I don't have your camera skills but I sure have fun finding things to photograph. Thanks.

Charles Gramlich said...

Wow, you told a perfect story with those pictures and the words mixed. This is a new genre maybe, photo-graphic poetry.

Bond said...

And Mimi does it again....

Wonderfully arranged words and pictures.

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - I like it! You may be on to something here...

Mimi Lenox said...

Bond - Thank you my friend..

jennifer said...

There is something so lovely about Wysteria. Gorgeous photos Mimi - the vines on the old house make me think of pearls draped around an aged and wattled neck (my mother said she wore rhinestones the other evening. That made me smile).

Mimi Lenox said...

Jen - MySTERious....Absolutely. She wore rhinestones! Yay!

Travis said...

I didn't see the ghost. Dangit.

Oh well. The pictures were still lovely.
