Secret Garden

NaPoWriMo 2020: Day 20

Yes, I own
the art of being alone.
Took years to hone
definition of Hermit.

Am far more
at ease with self
than with

Occasionally have guests,
but more than one
at a time
is exhausting.

Would far rather
rest, here
in my own
secret garden.

Where smell of ink
is like fresh
bouquet of early
Spring flowers.

And words become
a path through
forest of trees
begging me “Please”

to enter.

Notes: Image is a “fantasy” of repeated lines done in a single color of ink. It is titled “Secret Garden”.  It is getting more difficult to choose the image for the day, but when I hit this one, the words scampered out to greet me. So I ran off and played with them.
