A WINTER WONDERLAND

The gate is open.

I’m going inside.

I wonder who owns this property.

Is it some computer wizard

or maybe a movie star?

For now, it’s mine.

It is quiet and deserted.

No footsteps in the snow,

besides mine.

The trees extend far into the distance.

All I can see is white and more white.

A winter wonderland

created just for me.

I hear a rumbling sound

coming from beneath me.

It’s not beneath me

but next to me.

Two Doberman Pinschers

are growling up at me.

“Zeus, Apollo?”

More growling.

Time to run.

For my life.
