cottage of new beginnings

a cottage of new beginnings, a place for a fresh start, for blueberry muffins, and monarch butterflies, and the scent of what used to be lingering in the air just long enough to know it’s there but gone quick so we mustn’t ponder it. no, this cabin is not for pondering, or worries, or painful memories. this home is for crackling fires, and record players, and bedtime stories. that scent of the past, of what came before, is nothing but a memory masked by the aroma of baking bread, and cinnamon candles, and freshly washed jumpers, in this cottage of new beginnings. -mg 1/6/21
