They each seem to beckon, and magnetically draw my eyes to notice.
In those brief moments as my car flashes by.....
I'm struck by the stark contrast the ruins evoke, compared to the thriving nature beside.
I can't help but admire that while the buildings look neglected and broken,
they nevertheless remain resilient, calm, and grand.
I crave the chance to explore, and (pretend to) uncover treasure troves of stories, and silent memories preserved inside!
