Deep in the woods you’re lost. Have you considered if you’ve come upon an enchanted forest? It’s difficult to comprehend when you’ve crossed the threshold from the untamed wild to land of talking animals, pixies, enchantresses, wizards, and magic folk. 

It’s impossible to know after days of wandering whether that deserted cabin in the clearing is actually deserted. But with clarity, you inhale the potent herbs mingling with the scent of roasted venison and fresh bread. 

 Do you believe your eyes when the most sinfully attractive man approaches and offers you a cup to slake your thirst and food to fill your belly? Do you trust your senses? Have you realized yet, you’ve always been in an enchanted forest?

The Storyteller’s Abode (Louise)

——–

Mister, you are lucky to walk your dog, 

To have his companionship whether, 

His attentions are unwanted or whether, 

You need him to cuddle with while you blog. 

——

Mister you’re lucky, your wife likes your dog, 

That he loves her and protects her whether, 

She’s mad he’s eating gross things, or there’s fur —

Needing to be vacuumed all around home, sob! 

——

I, a boy, had a dog; she got too sick, 

Vets tried to save her; she died with a lick. 

Pets are as humans, we don’t know how long, 

We’ll be here to love, bring cheer, give kisses.

When this boy, wants to pet your dog, let him. 

Reminds him of his dog, brings joy too share.
