Secret Place Poem

While X marks the spot for buried treasure, I have a place I like to go. It’s my own secret place. I lock it for privacy, to write, to work, to pray. I create things here. I see everything from Pompeii, Mount Everest, the Arabian dessert, the depth of the endless ocean. I’ve seen the worst of wars end in peace. In this secret place I can go beyond the earth and past the sun, the moon, and infinite space. And the best part is, I’m always back in time for dinner.
