An empty room...

An empty room a
lonely house and in the air
so many whispers

I took these pictures around 1992 in the same old house of this post.
I've scanned paper pictures.
At that time, after the collapse of the GDR, there were a lot of old abandoned houses.
People have moved away after the border was open ...
Meanwhile, these houses are almost all gone. Most are demolished, some have been restored.
At this time I was in many houses and factories, have felt its special atmosphere and heard what they tell me. - These were very many stories and each house had a peculiar face, for me ...


  1. so easy to get into this haiku; is there ever a void in reality?
    have a nice Sunday; thanks for linking up to the Sunday Lime

    much love...

  2. Brilliant Art -
    Sure tells a deep story -

    and - I wonder about your Hibiscus Clothing, too . . what is your new color preference . . hmmm.
    Happy Day!

  3. Beautiful - both the haiku and the photos! It's amazing to me how alive some rooms can feel, even when empty, while others seem lifeless even when filled with furnishings... I'm glad that you scanned these!

  4. love your haiku. I think the laundry basket makes this a more poignant scene.

  5. Thought provoking post. Nice shots. I feel sad for the occupants who left this space. Thanks for linking up!

  6. It may be an old, neglected room now, but it is filled with unknown memories.

  7. I like the up to date plumbing! Tom The Backroads Traveller

  8. Wow these have that "hauntingly lonely" quality about them. The lone basket on the empty floor is intriguing.

  9. Lovely tribute to the past, and the old house that once bustled with activity. Beautiful photos!
