From the Ashes: The Future of Arda

Sylvani: A Calling

A man came to me and asked
“Why do you follow the Spirits?”
I answered honestly
and
Haltingly

They are the framework of creation
In all things
As all things are of them

They are old things
Young things
Fire and water and earth and air
Death
Life
And all the shades between

He said I had a gift
And called me to deepen it
To walk with mortals
As a bastion of the Spirits

And now like the lilies
My heart is blooming
Full to bursting with bright colors as saturated
As any one of nature’s hues

They are
Unexplained
Foreign
Frightening, but still beautiful

My soul sings poetry as it rains
And with the wolf
I cry rejoicing to the moon


I traveled East with my
Friend

We walked on traveled trails
And visited temples of his gods
I saw cities with buildings
Tall as trees

Strange arcane beauty
Flowing in mortals and mortar alike
Speaking ancient languages
With wagging tongues

I wandered in solitude
But not alone
Seeking
More of this world
And the one beyond


Return is a funny thing
We come back
Changed
And
Often stronger

We come back
With stories
Half-truths
And joy


Departure is also strange
Especially
When it leads to other journeys
