For Yesterdays future
In heavens gate do all wish to gather
Of deeds yet to be done
Regrets we linger, yet never dwell in
Gambled with toady’s stakes
There was never a moment, none in recent memory, of worlds colliding with such strange effect. It was once hypothesised that for action taken or denied, an alternate reality blooms. However, none suspected just how close the worlds or universes were and how little it would take to cross from one to another…
For these few, the ones that have the “Knack” as it were, a meeting of the minds will be quite enlightening.
Above is my introduction excerpt for an idea I’d been meaning to write about and touched on briefly elsewhere and below is something of a preamble/intro page for the book I’m thinking of trying out…
A game of numbers
J. Nathanial Corres
Stare into the abyss
a singular silence prevails
In the heart of a dead star
A song of ages past and yet to come
All around, numberless
The lights of a billion worlds
Millions of eyes upon, but one, not the masses
To become one with the nether
Or to sing in harmony
Do we, in our madness
Could it be understanding
Clarity is such a subjective view
To that end or any other
We contemplate the mind of the watcher
Never consider our own position
Would, at final stroke, at last
Shall we finally solve the equation?
Dare we even speak its name
That’s where I’m at officially. Unofficially – wait and buy the book! Okay, all of this is under my copyright already, so no fuss. I’m thinking of writing the guide to the world of Hearts and Scales with a few added bonuses for the writing few. This is a fun project, meant to test the limits of humour and such and how people perceive creatures like dragons. For my end, I’ve tried to explore the forgotten aspects of the myths of dragons and the odd tale no one has paid much mind to.
I’m even wondering if I should write up Dragon Politics. Yeah, I’ve had a few years to contemplate or ponder such questions. It’s hard not to like or be fascinated by the idea of dragons.
This doesn’t even count the stories about Cthulu and all that other worldly being topics that I tackle in Elder Offensive. Over the last 4 years, between poetry writings and such, I’ve done a lot to finally write the tales/stories locked in my heart that were screaming to be told/written.
Now, to the fates and my own personal finances to pay off a good artist. I wonder what ever happened to being able to count on folk for prices other than a king’s ransom? Oh well… One must do what one must and soldier on..
Till next time ~
