City Lights

At heart - she was a country girl. She loved running wild in the woods...wrapping herself around the bushes..climbing the branches of the highest trees.

She loved walking barefoot..feeling the wind in her hair as she laughed at the cry of the wolf..the song of the distant loon.

But the city was enchanting..its bright lights seductive and alluring. She'd never seen anything like it before. The activity..the excitement..the thrill.

For a moment - she forgot about the expanse of stars in the open sky..the smell of the clean fresh air.

It was just as she imagined it would be. The bright lights. The big city.
