Alternate Realities – Chapter Eight : Training the dragons

Alternate Realities – Chapter Eight : Training the dragons

She was awoken from her daydreaming about the dragons with a start when Horus touched her arm and pointed to a large clearing in the woods above which they were flying. Horus uttered a few words in the language of the light and the dragons swooped towards the clearing. She just had the time to cling on for dear life to the bony protrusion at the base of the dragon’s neck before they swooped as she had understood the command Horus gave just in time. The dragons had grown again in stature as she had been imagining them growing while they flew. They stood now in a circle around the large clearing.

 

Horus gave an order and the dragons took to the skies again before swooping down with their mouths open but without fires coming out of them. She realized that they were mimicking a flame attack but were just not using the full breath of the dragon as they did not want to set fire to the woods. Some of the dragon crossed each other’s paths and Horus asked them to stay at a safe distance from each other. He again gave the order for the attack and this time they came down swooping without crossing each other’s paths. After he had made them repeat the attack around 15 times, Horus told them that they could now play for the rest of the time.

 

The dragons scurried along the clearing and some wrestled playfully while the others flew about in the skies pursuing one another. A couple of dragons started getting overexcited and this resulted in them breathing out flames. Horus yelled out an order but it was too late. The flames had caught on to the adjacent trees that were very dry and immediately shot into a high flaming torch. The fire spread quickly to the nearby trees and it was soon a bushfire. The dragon she had rode on at the beginning swooped down from the skies and lowered his head so that she may climb up. She mounted and it immediately took off to the skies with the other dragons following closely. Horus was not very pleased with the incident but told her that the rains would take care of the bushfire in due course. He was still pleased with the rigour shown by the dragons in the training despite the incident as they were relatively young and inexperienced dragons. They are almost ready, he said with a smile.

Wandering

The mind follows bends

Of pathways

Yesterday

A walk in Netherland stride

Reckoning of wild

 

Wavering

Consciousness between

Allowed hues

Disowned blues

A patchwork of dreams

Uncovering streams

 

Plundering

In waves comes the greed

From the depths

Missing steps

The soul recovering sheen

Of forgotten spleen

Break me pot

Dancing tradition

Rhythmic feat

Balanced neat

On the verge of extinction

A race to repeat

 

Blow me hot

The egg shells within

Frame melting

Iron clad

Beyond the anklets tightened

Staggering demand

 

Find me not

Irreducible

Elbows still

Ache the ribs

As I disperse beyond sheen

Of matter unseen

Battles fought

Against the dark self

Writhing lies

Evidence

Body of the consumption

Dancing to the Truth

 

Call me Ruth

Never mind the name

Build me frame

Like a game

I will play with you as tame

Before you’re in flame

 

Combustion

The wood that implodes

Building spark

From the lark

Voices beckon to fire’s ark

Come out of the dark

She sleeps not

Slumber a migrant

Eyelids wane

Window pane

Glassy content of iris

Myriads of stories

 

Fragmented

Illusions of life

Power strife

Lost battles

Reminiscence of the spoils

Battlefield gargoyles

 

Self monsters

Darkness overcome

Or never

Mind clever

Constant crisscross of the word

Of puzzles unheard

 

Withered speech

The tongue bridge to breach

The outreach

A dark plunge

Like a drunken man will lunge

Into the bosom

 

Tales of ore

Constantly hammered

Crown jewels

Chest medal

In between a neck strangled

Studded star spangled

 

Throaty spells

Voicing world over

Sleep that dreams

Jolting bolt

The whiff of paraphilia

Waking Ophelia

In glory we set the purpose of Flames

The battlefield signed with blood of the hosts

The hearts we forget in thrill of the games

The endless confined by flags that mind posts

 

Now laden regret the tears of the Thames

For the bodies lined the conquests one boasts

Hearts aid and abet the hand that them maims

A closure to fret horizon of ghosts

 

Pray tell me now clear where do rivers flow

When thick with the blood they ravage valleys

I harbour no fear of underground glow

 

Oncoming the flood of tears that we know

The hearts that we smear in night-clad alleys

Shells of Flames in bud that silent we grow

Lonely times

Gathering instants

Cast battles

Shades of scars

Revisiting lost ventures

In twilight’s shadows

 

Cancer grows

Where the truth falters

Purity

Forsaken

Foundations of cells shaken

By the rampant lie

 

Reckoning

The past shielded fruit

Covered space

Brittle lace

Icings falling off a cake

Of mouldy sweetness

 

Bitter taste

Of stale emptiness

Unresolved

Surging bile

Opposites in mind beguile

The waning sweet smile

 

Lost a while

In the frenzied pace

Renewal

Of resolve

The tides of rebirth absolve

Every living soul

 

Scent of space

Time immemorial

Renewed grace

Paced footsteps

Walking down the hedged lane

The trees exhale scents

Before break of dawn

Luminescence stirs me up

With traces of you

 

I follow the trails

Passive tracks in starlit steps

The walk to nowhere

Like a lost atom

Rotating in my own world

Eons from myself

 

You breathe into me

Through dreamtime that lies across

The rivers divide

We walk in shadows

In between dark and the light

Separate glances

 

Whirring like clockwork

In between what’s you and me

The moving fences

Wrestling with chaos

I cannot sleep the night through

Battles of moonlight

 

A day will soon rise

When sleep will be no longer

The waking Times shine

Tireless feet move

Anticipated rising

Woodworks hush the call

 

Intricate weavings

Tapestries heave, fall apart

The needle’s tremors

 

Sun in the zenith

Bellows with a thousand rays

Freckled shards’ yellow

A belly growls low

Tides of a million answer

The great floods prepare

 

A head out of will

Reaches out from yonder stones

All for the keeping

 

Winterlands will foam

Bubbles of a crimson sea

As the shores beckon

Icy with ravens

Black kingdoms rise in deserts

The breathing sands’ tombs

 

Flutters in Temples

Eyes staring at white ceilings

The curse of the sight

 

Of many the brave

A Journey of no return

Hails the inner flesh

Exclusivity

Privilege of the blinded

Weighing wings as coal

.

Dark possession stills

Infinite movements of rays

That called to all souls

.

The battles in me

Rage with the memories spent

Collecting pieces

.

Relics of lives bent

Hanging like corpses spread out

Between Sky and Earth

.

Words falling from ink

Printing in mind a landscape

Toying black and pink

.

Delving into mind

Fluttering butterfly turns

Moth in the making

.

Heart’s light responds soft

Echoes of feeling paint me

Colours of life’s hues

.
