Alkemi (Part 10) continues the unfolding story of a Red Kite ascending on a metaphysical stairway watched by Venus who shines brightly above him. It is her Love that impels the Kite upwards and onwards into the very Heart of Creativity.
~ Piper At The Gates Of Dawn – (12) – Alkemi (10) ~ By Dewin Nefol ~
The dead have awoken within me: guardians of the afterlife,
Guides through darkness, protectors from demonic strife.
I feel their flux their hallowed flow, I see the underworld the swarthy glow,
I sense black blood throbbing in my veins: I know of their woe their never-ending pain,
Life stolen from them in the ender’s game, by the Reaper who scythes again and again.
But for what purpose do they haunt me? Indeed why are they there,
Waiting for me at the top of the stairs to join with them in communal prayer
Worshiping Darkness idolising Death, intoxicated by memory of one last breath
Released in the grave grey wilderness, where restless they roam seeking a home but finding only me,
Empty of Death full of Life, a receptacle for energy: an opportunity to live and dream again, reborn in the words of Poetry.
