A Close Life

In a quiet little town-
close enough to the coast to look for seaglass in summer.

Is a cozy little house-
close enough to the woods to watch the leaves change in fall.

With a few good neighbors-
close enough to share baked goods and gossip in winter.

Who sit around a fire-
close enough to imagine the warmth is the approaching spring.
