Could this matchbox be any more dilapidated?!

The colour’s gone. The scratch plate’s scarred. The cardboard’s collapsing.

The edges are frayed. The matches are burnt.

The grass looks like it can’t wait for a decent rain shower to finish the job.

This tiny tragedy was the first thing I saw yesterday.

Buoyed by your highly supportive comments, I went hunting in bad weather.

Thank you for the inspiration and power!

I got other shots, but this was the standout.

I hope it lights your fire. 🙂
