She stood on top of the hill,
her eyes on the distant land
even as her sheep grazed
patches of fresh green grass.
Her dog, a loyal companion, stood guard
ears twitching at the slightest sound.
Running across the open space,
determined to protect the herd of sheep.
Growing up on a tiny farm,
imagination filled the blanks
real world could not answer,
leaving her to create a kingdom of her own.
