I’ve stepped in the middle of seven sad forests
In traveling and describing “seven forests”, it seems comparable to describing the seven continents
I think he is referring to the entire world being reduced to a sad state.
However, in fully considering the context of the words, the natural beauty of forests, is truly a blessing. Think about how magnificent each one is.
The rain forests of the world:
The mysterious darkness, like a curtain, open to allow beams of sunlight through in a breathtaking display.
The thought of seeing their demise is like death upon death, especially, if you have to go on living, while sojourning through the carnage of nature.
