In a landscape

Avatar Author: Kater I love music, books, and food! Read Bio

I drop down through the clouds and into the forest, my movement slow, almost suspended. The earth is coming up to meet me. My bare feet land softly on the forest floor. I take two breaths, inhaling my surroundings. It is daylight, and the pine trees are stretching up to the sun. I cast my eyes up to the sky to gauge their height and I am blinded. Rubbing my eyes to clear the spots that blur my vision, I look back down. Pine needles litter the charred earth. The trees here are bare in some areas, the victim of a fire. Blackened stumps and missing limbs dot the view in front of me. A flash of movement catches my eye. A wolf’s head peeks out from behind a tree and then disappears just as quickly.

They’re watching me.

    I think wolves get this bad rap about eating things that don’t want to be eaten. I think the wolves just want to play. See, I got this german shepard/boxer mix that loves to play peek-a-boo. I hide under the blankets, then bam … I see you. OMG! what fun. anywho, is it’s tail waggin’ cause that’s how you can tell.

    It’s a dream, I’ll probably write the rest later. The wolves weren’t bad after all.
