The Tenth Tale of Something Vaster – “A Walk in the Forest”

Everyone goes into the forest to seek their tree.

Whether it is a coffin or door is a mystery to all.

Today is my day to walk into the forest.

Shall I bring food?

Or perhaps a death shroud?

Both grow heavier on my back with every step I take toward my uncertain future.

The cool, soft forest air soothes and ushers me onward.

My tree calls to me patiently.

Once near the gnarled, hard oak, I reach forth with gentle courage.

Imagination is my oldest friend who finds favored expression through writing and dance. The wild mystery of nature and existence frighten and inspire me. Though I love to create, sharing my creations doesn't come easy. Paranoid optimism describes my way of moving through this life.

I'd love to hear your thoughts...
