Warmer Sonnenschein strich über Madleens Gesicht und vertraute Stimmen schwebten gedämpft zu ihr herüber. Schlaftrunken streckte sie ihre steifen Glieder und schlug die Augen auf. Der Himmel über ihr erstrahlte in herrlichem Blau und die Welt um sie herum lag friedlich im Licht der Sonne. Sie lag am verschneiten Ufer eines Flusses, der in sanften Schwingen den winterlichen Wald teilte. Wenige Schritte von ihr entfernt saßen zahme Pfote und Langohr zusammen und unterhielten sich angeregt miteinander.

Ein Lächeln zeichnete sich bei ihrem Anblick in Madleens Gesicht. Wie unterschiedlich die zwei auch sein mochten, in ihrer Freundschaft ergänzten sie sich zweifellos auf wunderbare Art und Weise.

Sie richtete sich auf und kroch langsam an den Fluss heran, um ihren Durst an ihm zu stillen. Ihre Hände tauchten zu einer Schale geformt in das klare Wasser ein und trugen es an ihre Lippen. Doch schon der erste Tropfen, der ihre Zunge berührte, ließ sie abrupt innehalten. Das Flusswasser schmeckte salzig. Nicht so wie Meereswasser, vielmehr wie Tränen.

„Dieser Fluss kann deinen Durst nicht stillen.“ Zahme Pfote war lautlos neben ihr aufgetaucht. „Wir haben es auch schon probiert. Nimm lieber etwas Schnee.“

Madleen befolgte den Rat der Füchsin und benetzte ihre Zunge mit Schnee, der in ihrem Mund zu reinem Wasser zerschmolz. „Waren die Sturmgeister nur ein böser Traum?“

„Nein. Wir sind ihnen wirklich begegnet. Das bedeutet, dass wir auf dem richtigen Weg sind. Wie ein Band zieht sich der Schneesturm durch den Wald um die Ebene herum und schirmt sie ab. Du kannst ihn hinter den Bäumen sogar noch hören.“

Tatsächlich vernahm sie das dumpfe Tosen des Sturmes leise von den Bäumen her. „Und wo sind wir jetzt?“

Noch bevor zahme Pfote antworten konnte, ertöne ein lustiges Plätschern und Klirren, wie von tausenden Perlen, und aus dem Fluss erhob sich die Gestalt einer alten Frau, deren Gesicht im Spiel des Wassers verwirrend unstet zu ihnen blickte. „Ihr seid am Fluss der Tränen angekommen.“ Die Stimme der Frau klang sanft und gleichsam unendlich traurig. Dennoch glaubte Madleen ein Lächeln in ihren Zügen erkennen zu können.

„Am Fluss der Tränen?“, fragte sie verwundert nach.

„Ich trage allen Kummer dieser Welt in mir und geleite ihn zum Meer“, erläuterte die alte Frau. „Bevor dieser Sturm aufzog, schätzten Tiere und Menschen mein Wasser für seine besondere Note. Nun aber bin ich ungenießbar geworden, so viele Sorgen landen in mir.“ Mit klagender Stimme fuhr sie fort: „Sie doch nur. Ich bin derart übersättigt, dass sich die Tränen schon als Perlen in meinem Bett sammeln. Wenn doch nur das Meer endlich tauen würde, damit ich wieder abfließen kann. Es ist höchste Zeit!“

„Zeit?“ Auf einmal war Madleen ganz aufgeregt. „Ich bin auf der Suche nach ihr! Wie kann ich sie finden?“

„Folge meinem Lauf. Die Erklärung für all das hier findest du hinter dem Meer. Das ist alles, was ich weiß.“

„Vielen Dank! Ich werde das Meer zum Schmelzen bringen, damit die Tränen wieder abfließen können“, versprach sie, auch wenn sie noch keine Ahnung hatte, wie sie dies anstellen wollte.

    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I
    had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers?

    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

    some experience with something like this. Please let me know

    useful information to work on. You have done a outstanding job!

  22. Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging
    on sites I stumbleupon everyday. It’s always interesting to read
    through articles from other writers and use something from other websites.

    Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear
    to understand so much about this, such as you wrote the book in it
    or something. I believe that you just could do with a few percent to drive the message house
    a little bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog.
    A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.

  24. I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the web will be much more useful than ever before.

    you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your
    thoughts prior to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas
    out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be
    wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Thank you!
