In a foreign land, a boy named Jack
wandered far from home.
days of walking found him in a solitary
stone house, weather-worn, uninhabited.
hidden among tall trees deep inside a forest.

The moss-covered shelter looked
like stray animals and all sorts of crawling
creatures would find their home in it.
but darkness and exhaustion overtook him
and he fell right off to sleep for the night.

Daybreak roused him to go explore outside.
Holding this jungle sanctuary upright were
giant roots of an aged tree which clung
tenaciously around one side like a protective
hand,  its trunk stretched upwards endlessly
into the clouds, where it disappeared into a mist.

And this is where the story we all know began.
Did the writer find his inspiration here?

Eh . . . Inspiration comes to us in many different forms. Who am I to poo-poo an idea generated from this magnificent structure and surroundings? Not I!

This would inspire anyone! I love Cambodia and my visit to the angkor wat temples  especially Ta Prohm will stay with me forever.
Thank you for the reminder of how spectacular and awe inspiring they are. xx

actually my recent photos came from my bachelor nephew who loves to travel and take pictures. This is from a recent one.

Just wanted to let my imagination transport me to the old childhood story. And thanks Jerry, there are inspirations and inspirations, I never know what imp would suddenly tickle me to write stuff like this
