Seeking An Escape From the Dullness of Winter
Though I love the change of the
seasons, this winter has seemed
especially long .
Each day as I walk the icy trail
with the bitterly cold wind stinging
my skin, I dream of gardens.
I have always wanted to be like
Mary Lennox in The Secret Garden
and stumble upon a forgotten gem
that I will share with only the birds
and a few special people.
Though I love to be around people,
there is a part of me that loves solitude.
I love time to be alone with my thoughts.
To listen to the songs of the birds
or the splash of the fountain.
A place to settle in with a good book.
A place to retreat to,
to whisper secrets to a friend.
Or a romantic refuge where you can
enjoy kissing someone you love...
