My Quiet Place of Solitude

In shadows of the lodgepole pines, my thoughts form heart-shaped poems Without a quill to write them down, blue birds will fly them home
_______________ Many years ago, my husband and I, (along with my brother's family) joined forces and built a comfy little mountain cabin, in the Plumas National Forest of California, 5,000 elevation. It is near a gorgeous lake called "Little Grass Valley Lake" Beautiful, quiet, and serene...filled with tall timber, sivertip pines. We spend wonderful family times...most of our summers are spent with no tv, internet, no cell phones, our favorite place to be.... Long walks, hiking trails, sitting on the lakeshore provides wonderful inspiration for poetry. For Sara's Contest.....

    Enjoyed your poem and the stroll so much, Carrie. So refreshing. It's been years since my wife, son, and I went camping and enjoyed the out-of-doors. Thanks for sharing. Love, daver
