Magpie Tales Photo Prompt Week Six



sixpenny love 



my sixpenny effort
to build our love

left nails scattered
on the 
floor. 

step
lightly.

  2. I can relate to this post. I once tried to build bigger than the existing foundation could ever hold. There are more than a few scattered nails left behind, land mines for those to come.

    Thank you for becoming a "follower" of my blog and the words of support. Glad to have found you as well.
