The scenery of a lush carpeted forest floors
and flourishing tree limbs intertwining,
makes me reminiscent of childhood days
at play with my companion wagging his tail
as we ventured into the make-believe.
I, the princess, and my brave pup would recreate fairytales
of fending off the dragon with my sword-like branch,
that was until we saw beyond the thickets
the front porch light glitter in the distance,
and our adventures would end for the day.
