This time you were too far. From one side there was ocean, from the other -
dark grey forest with trees disfigured from the wind.
Their branches were covered by dry silver moss, which almost reached the ground.
In the very deep of the forest, right in the middle of it there was a lake.
Its transparent water reflected the blue color of the clear and endless sky.
There was peace and quite everywhere and only the ocean disturbed sometimes
this heavenly silence by the sound of the waves.
Day was coming to an end. For a minute the sky blew up by the lemon color of the sunset
and became black at once. Night was coming, bringing fear but this strange silence all around
you seemed to take your strength away and that's why I didn't want to move ahead.
I was standing and watching the end of this wonderful day till darkness covered me.
But even when it became very, very dark, I still remembered the color of everything that surrounded me:
the blue of the sky and the green of the grass. All the colors of the day seemed to come to life in their natural beauty.
Then I came to a narrow road, which stretched like a snake between the forest lake and the ocean.
Silence was still in the air, when suddenly bright yellow car headlights stroke right into my eyes
and a loud rumble of a car engine gave me a start.
Mechanically I raised my hand to stop the car and thought about the driver
and what he feels when he takes a hitchhiker.
Every time it's a mystery and you yourself take an active part in it,
because you should have a strong inner effort and flash inside
with a bright light of your own intention...
That was the last car on the dark night road, stretching along the ocean.
