Rain and solitude
Drive through town and turn down the dirt road
Watch out for ruts after rain
The driveway is gravel
And the cabin door is unlocked.
There’s a key but most people don’t use it.
We hope you enjoy your stay.
After a rainy day in the car
The cabin is a welcome sight
The rain let’s up
And starts again after dinner
No chance of seeing stars tonight.
The heater warms part of the room
Pillows block the cold air that seems to stream through the closed window.
Mini refrigerator, microwave, bathroom
Enough modern conveniences
To not be roughing it.
Trail maps on the table
Stains on the carpet
A brown towel with a note,
“Towel for wet muddy shoes!”
Time to plan tomorrow’s adventure,
And move on from the adventure of getting here.
There are always new adventures
Replacing the old ones.
