                                    A hotel room can be sad and old
                                   but also stylish and contemporary
                                   A room with two beds and a desk
                                     a soft chair and one hard chair
                                   Phone and The Bible in the drawer
                                      Some pictures on the wall of
                                     people or places I do not know
                                  If I open the window, it's just noise
                                     and exhaust the basis of traffic
                                      No give me one night or two
                                    in a cozy little cabin in the woods
                                  Where the bear, fox and moose live
                            And I can wake up to birds singing beautifully
                        Hi .... there is a room available for you at the hotel

    I love the whimsy of this poem........and I'm with you! Give me a little cabin preferably....I am much more at home there in the wilds, than in the wilds of the city!! Love your take on this contest, Anne Lise!!

    I particularly like the last line and all the different ways I can think about it. Is it the welcome of the birds? Is it the welcome of the hotel you just left, or is it the voice you hear as you are checking out? Or is it our choice as to where we would go. Also, a "hotel" can be so much more--a place as part of a journey. I'm sure there are many more than escape me.

    This is another great write from you my very dear friend. Sometimes it's nice to be away from home to relax and to stay in a hotel is good but sometimes I prefer to stay in cabin in woods or rest houses to feel more the beauty of nature. I love your poem my dear Anne-Lise. Thank you so much for sharing and good luck always! Stopping by also to greet you and your family a very happy Valentines Day! Wish you all the best today and always! love and big hugs, Leonora

    You made me think about all the hotels I have been to. It is strange to walk into a hotel wondering what will find, that's why I always choose to go to 5 stars hotel. I hate bad surprises hehe. Thanks Ann , love your simplicity. Happy Valentine's day Enjoy Love, Ali
