Last week, as I was walking through the verdant lushness of a Swedish forest in glorious springtime weather, I suddenly saw something lurking there, in the shady woods. Just imagine – it has always been there, but I have only just noticed it for the very first time!
The dog jumped up on the mound and followed its length for several metres.
It seemed to be a back… the back of a leafy whale perhaps, slumbering in the coolness of the morning forest.
I followed the spine…
… all the way to the creature’s head.
I jumped back in fright!
For this creature was no gentle whale, but a sleeping giant that I was afraid to awaken. The dark eyes, the leafy hair, the feeling of brooding.
What is this mysterious object if not a sleeping giant?
The answer will be revealed tomorrow. Until then, check out That’s my world!
