Felling the Forest
The winds of change blow, gale force, across the surface of the soul, uprooting trees, stalwart giants of serenity, having grown there through the rolling years in solemn and turbulent silence; their mighty trunks taken for granted, patterned curtains of leaves protecting, nurturing the soft dark undergrowth lying quiet and undisturbed these many moons. The shock of exposed roots, the despairing crack of limbs, the sudden hysterical rustle of living green crashing tangled to the earth alarms the heart. The unfamiliar weight of shattered wood on soil unused to being trodden much less crushed beneath fallen expectations, is not entirely unwelcome, merely strange. The sky, once shrouded by those trees, is visible now in all its endless vista. And, crouching in the fallen forest, trembling yet intrigued, waits a halfgrown fledgling, unsure of wingspan, strength and loft, but brave enough, now that the blue bowl of the cosmos is revealed, to flutter, flap and finally soar from its shelter in the soil to claim its true domain. 2011 RC deWinter
