The Forester Oak

It was one of those days without a cloud in the sky.
The heat wave was upon us and tormented those who weren’t at the beach.
I was on my way to the sea, when I passed the old oak, which is over 800 years old.
The tree was not very pretentious at a distance but that perception changed quickly to curiosity when I got closer.
The oak tree is hollow.
I walked through a tall passage in the tree trunk and suddenly I was in another world.
A world of silence and a welcome coolness. Actually I’ve experience this before, in a church!
I look attentively around in my newly discovered cave.
The tree gives me notions of a stalactite cave but that illusion is destroyed by the look of the green oak leaves through a hole in top of the cave.

Georg Weisler, a catholic forester used the cave as a pray chamber, maybe he was druid, in secrecy ❤
Forester Georg Weisler lived in the years 1792 – 1854, and came from Bohemia.
