Fairytale-forest

It is
a fairytale-forest
up here.
A real enchanted
wood,
sea of green beneath
my wandering feet.
Up, up,
high,
towards the horizon!

 

Ascending,
never breaking stride,
up into the light,
towards freedom –
only to find that
behind the horizon
up there,
on top of the hill,
on top of the world,
the forest is more dense...

 

No new horizon,
no breathtaking view,
just another part
of the journey.

 

Green ocean,
dead leaves below my feet,
living pillars,
a flood of sunlit
sunlit green
shimmering around.
No hint of
civilisation,
smoke, rush and cold stone.

 

Birds,
trees,
sunlight –
my companions.

 

I feel the enchantment.
Wilderness,
small and encircled,
but alive and breathing!

 

I close my eyes
and vanish
into my dreams,
fade away...

 

In such a forest,
anything might happen,
anything might appear...
werewolves and elf-lords,
fairies and unicorns...

 

It all might have been
true and real
some distant day,
long gone,
long past...

 

But here,
time is standing
still –
apart from
the seasons flowing by...

 

Who knows?
My door to another world,
though only
in my mind.

 

One day,
I might pass it...
One day,
my fairytale-forest dreams
might spring to life –
and be it only
in my mind...
