What’s over those distant hills?

I’m stuck, entrapped, by this fence. Yes, it is beautiful, an it keeps me safe, but I feel so limited. My only contact is my two roommates who are at this moment in the barn, and occasionally my master.

*The Beanery Writers Group meets the 2nd and 4th Fridays between 1:00 p.m.and3:00 p. m.
