In a bed of grass

In a city near Erfurt Germany in a burned out and abandoned hotel this room sat quiet amongst the bustle of the busy city outside, slowly it was reclaimed by nature and no one knows of the beauty that laid just a few feet from the busy street below The room was sealed shut and the moisture was warm and thick in the air from the leaking ceiling above which had turned this room into a natural terrarium
