when hiking in the winter woods,
we came upon this dwelling.
house, fort, cottage, hideaway, castle?
“home is any four walls that enclose the right person.”
what a lovely little place
discovered on a walk in the woods
nestled beneath the old trees
resting on a blanket
of the softest pine needles
open to all who happen by
who lives here?
“when you’re wide open, the world is a good place.”
