The Magical Doorway
Look at this top photo for instance. What do you see there? First there is the path covered in old leaves. Then there is a covering of bare branches. But what I see is a doorway. In my mind this doorway could lead to so many wonderful places. All I have to do is let my imagination go free and this doorway will take me there.
The doorway is always there, but it never takes me to the same place twice. I see this doorway every time I go to this place. It could lead to a colorful meadow, or a fantasy world full of magic and fun. I guess the doorway would lead to a different place for each person. Where would it lead to for you?
That was a time when the trees were falling in this forest so much that they had to close the park at one point. I guess there is a reason for everything that happens, even the seeming natural destruction of a forest. It seemed like half the forest had fallen down, but then, as if by magic, things like this doorway were formed.
I guess only I know where it really leads, and it really is a fantastic place. There are a few dragons there, as well as the fairies, but I don't let them bother me. There is also a meadow full of birds and butterflies there. There is also a mysterious tree full of golden apples there that almost calls out to me, but I never touch it. Do you wonder what you would see?
I can hear the wind blowing outside my window as I write this. I wonder if it will blow trees down in this forest again. Will the doorway be there the next time I go back? Or will it disappear seemingly forever, only to reappear in another hundred years to lead another traveler to a fantastic meadow full of dragons and butterflies.
