Today the forest was still.
The wind was calm.
The air had become heavy and stifling.
The sky has no clouds.
I know this will become a pattern.
Once it has become a plague,
the living creatures will flee.
I hope someday the omen will be over.
Then I can forget all the sorrow.
Today I have only fear.
