...i step forward, carefully, leaving the portal behind to see who i might meet and find there is a break in the canopy where a ray of sun pierces to the forest floor.
the scampering of little feet and a glimpse of a tail out of the corner of my eye lets me know for sure that i am not alone in this space. i turn and turn to look around, try to catch any other spectators and just as i am ready to ask who's there i see a small flower directly in front of me.
the bloom is fresh and unlike any i have seen. this was procured and placed intentionally.
i bend to pick it up and hear the cackle of a raven above me. startled, I straighten and look up. nothing but leaves. nothing, but obviously something.
feeling perfectly foolish i ask the general area, ''is this for me?''
the leaves above rustle and a gentle wind courses through the trees. the breeze turns the flower slightly in my direction.
okay then. i pick it up.
walking in the direction the wind came from i listen. i can hear that raven laughing away to himself behind me but also the moderate snores of a sleeping critter coming from a nearby tree. an owl.
ahead i see the lively eyes of a fox peering at me from behind the large above ground root of an immense tree.
the lichens and fungi growing over most surfaces have a light loamy scent and as the light fades a growing phosphorescence that wafts with the movement of the air...
i have been greeted and i will carry on, this small flower is an offering, no matter what that raven thinks.
