I am so small, the world so big.
This corner built just right for hiding in.
Dark under the stairs and handy
for listening for danger’s footsteps
lest they come for me.

I have gotten so much done on “the” book today that I’m cheating and just doing this one tiny prompt. Just 32 words? Can’t hurt…

For Weekend Writing Prompt #126, we are to write on the subject of “Haven” using only 32 words.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    I love this — I think my haven was simply my bedroom with the doors closed. I could read there, or dream, or whatever was the need of the hour. It sounds like you are making good progress on the book ~ ~
