Cover that drapes, that bends,
that loosely cloaks an area.
A space partially shut from sky,
but with give, no walls in its design.
Beneath the canopy. Shadows flit,
and shapes that make shadow.
Shade and curiosity, creatures drawn
to looking up at light filtering
through undersides, a pliable ceiling.
A room is claimed by the canopy,
a place defined by what it offers:
protection, woven through with magic.
