From Skylandia:

Skylandia
a place where
clouds sail
over pine forests
and sweep down
deep, cold lakes
over fields of wild grasses.

A place located
at the crossroads
of reality and myth
on a map that requires
faith to unfold
where belief unlocks
a farmhouse that has no keys
and the taste of raspberries
tumbles down hillsides.
