Dark Forest (Happy Halloween!)
This piece, Dark Forest, is part of the Fairy Tale series I started with Mirror Mirror. I've added all the darkness and suspense of Halloween to the forest of darkness that haunts us during those dark times of our lives.
Whether our valleys are communal (like Hurricane Sandy) or private (like a breakup, divorce, illness, death, etc.), I hope you can find some joy to hold on to.
On your walk, Beware the craggy tree limbs that snag and grab like disembodied hands grasping. Beware the watchers and gossipers. Beware the apple of temptation, whatever yours may be. Find your light and fan those flames to banish the fears.
