Cottage in the woods.
You draw me, ever closer.
Vision of my dreams and longings.
sweet childhood memories.
Recaptured innocence, wonder and peace.
Calling from years long past.
Summer’s sparkling, halcyon days.
Simple, yet wiser ways.
This solitude brings no sadness.
Only retreat from the madding crowd.
I will open my/your heart.
With key in hand.
Deed in pocket.
To rest, renew, remain.
Captured, blissful reality.
Savored, treasured completion.
Fully and finally gained.
