Zero~Fading Into Being
I was falling, falling, falling.
Down, down, down.
Then at last, a light.
The darkness turning from black, to grey, to a blinding white.
The white fading to the clear, eyepercing blue of a perfect summer's day.
The wind rushing in my ears.
The twigs of a magnificent oak tree snapping as I fell down through them, leaves lashing my face.
A crunch as my back hit the thickest branch and bounced off, landing with a thud on cold, hard pavement.
