Rope Swing from the series Wild at Heart
This work is a constructed fiction created as a response to a dream of my ten-year-old son. Plying with friends on the edge of a forest, a rope swing hangs in the distance from an Oak tree. The children run toward the tree, but he can feel an impending doom. The ground opens up and the trees and children are gone, he is there, the last child standing, the forest vanished.
