each dream a beast from a legend unwritten,
their shadows cut from nightmares
and the wish to fly.

The woods round here are haunted. 

That’s how it feels. I step in between the trees and a different atmosphere settles. A listening quiet. There is the light susurration as my feet pad on dead needles. 

I walk between trees, thinking that the sound here is too muffled, the air too close to be a place outdoors. It feels more like a museum.
