There is no one
out but me.
Earlier I saw
a man & his dog
but now
they are gone.
I consider this
a great blessing
a richness to
my life.
Inside I sometimes
get lonely,
but outside
I never do.
I like it best
in winter
when the lake
is closed
to fishermen
& boats.
On week days
when the trail bikers
are more scarce
& walkers
are always
farther away.
