The Broken Bridge
The bottom steps are submerged in a pool of light. You blink for a few moments, blinded by the sun. What you eventually see takes your breath away.
Golden sunlight is pouring over a beautiful landscape of lush, green grass and, in the distance, the open land is ringed by a thick woodland of light brown trees with dark red leaves. The leaves dance in the warm, gentle breeze; swaying to the tinkling sound of a deep, sparkling blue river.
Ahead of you, beyond a green meadow peppered with a rainbow of wild flowers, the river cuts across your path.
