Her New Home

Tap, tap, tap. Bang, bang, bang. Workmen shout, bossy yet collegial. Buzzing saws, a hive of activity.

The foundation is laid; walls arise. Vacant portals await windows to let in the light.

That gaping entranceway feels unprotected, exposed to the wild. Quickly, hitch the door, keep it under lock and key.

A fresh scent of sawdust prickles her nose follicles – an aroma oddly similar to the smell of ash from a dying fire.

The skylight will offer a thrilling gateway to the stars, but what galaxies can she see from enclosed space?
