A Temporary Castle

1 Comment

A barbed wire fence surrounds
the castle to keep
those inside safe

an updated version
of crocodiles perhaps

After pressing a buzzer the gate
slowly opens like a draw-
bridge being lowered.

The castle is a sprawling
casita with charming arches
and awesome log ceilings

Grateful for the warmth,
the soft bed, the abundance
of food, the amazing grace
of the surrounding mountains
that in the evening hour
light up with amazing hues
of purples and pinks.
