Here we are

The plants in the forest grew wild with abandon.

Overflowing with the force of life.

Then death suddenly came on the wind.

A fire spreading with each exhale.

Charred.  Empty.  Still.

Those that survived became scorched by the flames.

Blackened bark with life.

And then, slowly…month by month…a layer of skin  was laid down to replace what had come before.

What was destroyed became mulch for the seeds released in the inferno.

Pause, reflect, notice.

What has changed, what’s new, what’s still the same?

Find a new path to travel through this terrain.

Another forest is forming now.

Full of life, full of wisdom.

What choices will you make?
