For the “Rebirth” challenge. A present for seleneheart

Trusted men, rangers and foresters not prone to exaggeration, reported what they had seen. The prince sent word to the king; they met near what once been the Black Gate and rode on, amazed.

Lupine and fireweed smoothed the jagged mountainside, blanketing the plain in color. Stands of willow and alder marked new watercourses where molten rock had once flowed. A kestrel wheeling overhead screeched and dived, doom to a hapless coney; while a doe and fawn peered wide-eyed from an elderberry thicket.

No longer Gorgoroth, land of dread, murmured the King. This vale will be renamed: Reclamation. Renewal. Resurrection.
