Echoes in Time

Eyes open to a twilight past
Lips they linger wise for a while
Tears touch to shore
To shining seas
We wander –
Sunset

Sunrise
We awake –
To bluish skies
Mindful of horizons
Tentative tomorrows echo today
Sense the timeless whisper

Battle

mythical
red-hearted
dare

sharpened axe
heavy shield
guarding
slivers
of lifeblood –
hacked away

forces collide
in a cloud of crashing kingdoms,
battle crescendoes
deafening
in horrendous
despair

thrusting sword
hailing arrows –
life
and death
mingle in the fray;
unafraid

death squad deployed
riders of rage
spear the tempest storm
one eye blind
one it sees –
destruction of limbs and crown

blood soaks the hill
and the grip of the blade
is lost
