Ode to a Tree House

This is a child’s place, cobbled together from carefully selected scrap wood. There is no fear in the construction, these branches will hold me. My body is too large for these spaces, so I step into a smaller one and scramble from platform to platform with ease. A small child sprawls among the branches like a cat, staring at the lake. A thousand adventures started here, and a thousand more are waiting to be discovered.
