Late in the evenings, as twilight settles and the sun sets, we receive a special visitor. She goes by Serena and she is the local forest spirit. Kind, gentle, and curious she drops by and with calm steps, she checks on us and the animals around the property.
Never does she growl or bark or jump. She simply waits quietly for your attention.
Serena looks like a dog, but behaves and feels so much wiser in spirit.
At the end of her visit she looks you in the eyes, and with a wag of her tail and click of her claws - she vanishes into the settling darkness of night.
Her visits come unpredictability, and she never stays for long. It’s just magic and we enjoy it while it lasts.
