( 12 )Beauty & Despair Meadow

After Breakfast, we headed down the trail to our next destination, Beauty and Despair Meadow...A meadow more challenging...because of hidden traps and snares, spread amongst its Beauty...

A very careful journey to embark, It's a must on sight, sounds and 6th sense of mind, body, and soul...

This meadow will take twice as long as the others we've crossed because of the traps in the most unlikely places...Including the waterway that runs through it, we'll be crossing...

We reached the edge of the Meadow and getting ready to cross...Justis believes this is why we were sent, Misty, by the god & goddess...

Hopefully, he's right, they are well known for their keen sense of danger that awaits in the shadow, I'd guess you'd say...We're stopping at the boundary to rest and eat before descending into the meadow...

After we get started, we'll not be able to stop till we reach the other side. from what Justis is telling us...as we set at the boundary of Beauty and Despair...the sunshine and the sweet smell of the honeysuckle fills the air, birds cheep their song high above in the magnolia, maple and evergreen trees...Looking to either side of the beginning of the trail, you can see rivers and streams sparkle like precious diamonds in the sunlight...Gently flows within the banks that surround them so beautifully...The beauty of such a place can and will cloud your mind and soul of the dangers that await in your travels...

This is why Misty the Pegasus will be of great importance to our safety as we travel across the meadow of Beauty and Despair...The Pegasus will come into play during the crossing, for they are not overcome by its beauty and smells as we, humans or Human-like creatures are...Justis feels this is why Misty was sent to us by the gods and goddess while at the other campsite...as we finish with food and rest...


Descent Into The Meadow

As we got ready for the descent into the meadow, fear overcame us, Justis, and I took lead with Misty, we knew we'd had to cross the meadow to get me to my village, Hampton Bluff...to save the people from the evil that had befallen them since my absent...

As we near a patch of wildflowers, Misty stopped dead in her tracks...Justis summoned some of the flying fairies to hover over the area of danger to help guide us through or around the trap or snares we came upon...It seems like Misty will be our saving grace as we travel the meadow...

If we had tried to go it alone we could lose some lives we're been entrusted with to get them to there villages we'd be going through before Hampton Bluff...Sunbeam, one of the flying fairy guide warned us of the creeping Briers that could be hidden beneath the beauty of the meadow...these briers are a dangerous plant, they can creep slowly toward you unaware of there presence beneath you and wrap around you in less than 2 minutes and pull you down and suffocate you...Very few could save you without putting there-self in danger...It's hard to realize a meadow of such beauty could hide such danger within if you're not careful...But there is so much more we have to face and overcome in the meadow before reaching safety...This leg of the Journey is one of the most dangerous and challenging parts of our travel...How many more things will we have to face and endure before reaching the other side of the meadow? We have no idea...We've been in this meadow for near 2 hours now...snares and traps galore, giant spider and scorpion have been one of many encounters we've come across...But have more yet to face...


Thanks to Justis and Misty we've almost out of the meadow of Beauty and Despair...I hope I never have to travel this way path again, but who knows what could happen in the future.
