do you wonder







finger cracking cold
don't turn the lights on
the night sky
is filled with the magic
of uncountable stars
the star nursery
has let them out to play
and the dark celebrates


how many suns
how many unknown planets
what life exists
so far beyond our ken
do they wonder at the far flung
beacons...beckoning
do they know cold and heat
feel fear and joy
do their hearts swell
with love and passion
does music move them
do they tell tales of yesterday
and dream of tomorrow
and question if they are alone


have they a god
and who is he
if they sacrifice with blood
does he smite their enemy
has their god sent them prophets
with how to live rules


when they sleep
if they sleep
do they dream as we do
do they mate do they breed
and delight in their young
do they die

do you wonder too

Eryll, I must borrow a phrase from The Cap'n, because nothing else works.

A Low Bow.

my witchling...wordless?
thanks angel... for your unswerving belief in my abilities, your on going support and appreciation.

i would write 'you are the wind beneath my wings' ... but...
sounds a bit pompous to me...
you get my drift though?
