Inspiring Soundtrack: Audiomachine – Ashes to Ashes – Tree of Life
Below her Zoe could feel the earth move and as she watched it with her new eyes she saw what she could only now begin to understand. Everything, every being, every element would play a part in the rebirth of this world.
As she soared overhead she witnessed the next piece of the cycle. The child floated forward, carried by its tiny wings, its head alight with the fire it carried. Even as it moved towards the old tree she could see the fire grow and feel the heat beneath her. It placed a hand on the cracking wood and the tree burst into flame, the fire burning high into the sky.
As she floated on the updraft she felt her heart swell. The ashes of the old tree would feed the dirt and allow the new tree to grow. All death would lead to rebirth. By sacrificing her body the tree would swell with life and even as she thought it, she watched it happen.
The field began to explode with green, spreading like lighting from the base of the tree. Each ember fed the ground with life and as the ashes spread, the world erupted. She soared above it all and heard Adam’s words echo through her mind: another transition had begun.
