This is probably the forest I love the most in the whole world! It is my childhood forest! Just right across the street from my childhood home. I played in this forest every day when I was little.
I also had to run through this forest to get to school and to visit my best friend.
I used to play with the Faeries by a little stream in these woods.
I would also seek comfort in the trees and flowers and grasses when I was sad.
I once saw a fairy by the stream! And I still remember today how it looked like!
I was never afraid of the forest and would even walk through it at night when it was so dark I couldn’t even see my own hands!
I also met a deer in this forest once. It was a very special moment in my life. The deer looked at me and I looked at him and then we bowed to each other.
Unfortunately, they built a parking lot close to the forest and they had to cut down some trees. When they did I felt that my soul would break.
Thank god, it was only a few trees and the forest still stands tall today.
I love(d) climbing those tall evergreen trees! Once, my father put up a bird house in one of the trees outside our kitchen window.
But mostly it was occupied by woodpeckers and brown furry squirrels.
The squirrels were all my friends, though. I just adore those reddish brown squirrels with their huge bushy tails!
I still believe this forest is full of tiny unknown creatures.
I built bridges, houses, docks, boats, paddocks and all kinds of other things for them when I was little.
I also brought home little rocks, pine needles, cones and moss to make lovely little trolls and forest creatures with.
I love my little faerie forest so much and I wish every child would have such a forest to love when they are growing up. I think then, we would all grow up loving nature and never ever wish to hurt our natural surroundings.
