       Sitting in the pouring rain on the porch of a house in downtown Placerville - from the days of old when everyone came to seek their fortunes - all was not so bright and shiny even then and the houses have their stories.

    Happy Day ES! Happy Weekend!

    dotsGold Rush Gonedots

    The hustle & bustle
    at a different
    place in time.......

    Though the melancholy, dilapitated
    homes lay as to the graveyard
    in the search
    for Gold.

    The Gold had just changed
    colors and now had turned

    Yet, the town had a special
    As a flower freshly bloomed
    with no appreciative eyes

    A love neglected
    the grey
    only cloaking
    the blinding
    brightness of day.

    So, we sing a song
    as we play, "The Song
    Remains the Same...."

    If there is no reason
    there is no 1 to blame.

      I'm guessing you're not a very greedy person, and are more "hippy" type so speak, but hey you could also be a ravenous serial killer, who's to say. a like the meaning and the subtle beauty intertwined with the neglegence of mankind. bye now

      Very good! I think this made a statement about how we let money and the chase of it interfere with our ability to enjoy the simple things in life as of old days, such as houses from a long gone generation. The flowers, the sunshine after a long rainy period. This to me was a wonderful way to remind us to take stock in the treasures of the past and not just focus on money. I like the way you tied all the negative traits that come with wanting nothing but money. and how greed was back then in the form of gold, but just changed currencey. I like the imagery of the houses looked forgone as a grave would. Your imagery was very good. So was your flow. Good work Tiff!

      I love this piece. It has very much truth behond it and it really keeps the read sucked into the poem. It's very clever and intelligent piece. Great work dear.

      I like the part about the town's aura compared to a flower freshly bloomed, with no eyes to see its beauty.
    The neglected life of a town that once was thriving with people and stories.. yet you can still "feel" the nostalgic atmosphere of its ghost.

    I'm not sure I understood it entirely..but I liked the overall feel... though, I kept wanting to read this line as.. "homes lay as a graveyard in search for gold".

      In days of old in days of gold
    When everyone was greedy
    No one cared and no one dared
    To try and help the needy.

    Up to your usual standard Tiffaroo.

    A very enjoyable read.

      This is really clever and beautiful
    This is written in your own unique way of writing which I love very much
    I take the Gold as representing the urge one has to find the true meaning of life
    I really liked this
    God Bless
