A Short Story in One Sentence Featuring Animals, Birds, Fish, and People

The red squirrel, diving into a hole in the earth to avoid a bald eagle, dropped a seed that grew into a fir tree and sent a root deep into the crack in a granite boulder, cleaving in two the stone and sending half of the stone tumbling down a mountainside, launching a landslide that slumped soil and stone and great trees across a stream, which then pooled into a lake where trout grew large, eventually attracting a man who loved fly fishing and who constructed a lodge alongside the shore, where children gathered to feed seeds to red squirrels.
