Lay Him Down

Where does the Ranger go
To lay him down
To lay his head
And Rest forever
Where does he go
To let things slow
Down forever and
Never to go
Out into the world
Save his last Journey
From death to dust
Will he slow
Down in silence
Amidst the cacophony
Of the Wayward Inn
High
Amongst the Ancient trees
Surrounded
By Heros, Thieves and Travellers
Wrapped
In mystique and miscomprehension
He will go
Tight lipped straight faced and
Alone.

Sol’s Twin

Sol’s Twin

From nothingness
there was light
Blinding white &
Pulsing life
A heartbeat
image
Then two.
Twins they were
As they turned blue
They danced
They played
Spinning
around and around.
image
Till energies expended
Their blues faded and
One said
“I’m tired, Brother.
Must we carry on?” and the
Other replied
“Come, Brother.
I will shield thee.”
Then two became one
And he turned yellow.
Alone in space
He wept tears of flame
image
But noticed his tears
Brought life forth.
So a guardian he became
once again.
Giving his soul and heart
To feed these lives
He brought forth
image
He grows ever larger still
And still gives yet more.
And more and more
Till yellow fades
image
Into red
The final scream
When the reaper comes
To suck the life
of the old giant
image
nothingness returns
Space reclaims the brothers’
Playground and the life
He nurtured.
