Introducing faucon of Sakin'el
Herald of the Light

I don't know whose task it is to light the lantern by the door at dusk -- that stumbling travelers might seek haven. I could be up to the honor, I suppose, though all of the travails of a sexton do not appeal (pun) to me. I would rather be as a hearald of the dawn and pinch out the feable candle glow and sing of the rising passion -- either way, there is a lantern at the abby I am sure ... consider --

Flicker

Of things that are beknow,
above belief, beyond entrancement
are those so imbued by Covenant;
and thus of me and thee.

We are Bearers of Light,
a flickering spark of divine breath
by choice and vibrant will enhanced;
and thus of we and all.

Our presence is profound,
a reed resonating in harmony
of tenor and pitch but ours alone;
and thus of EverSong.

Hense we are a lantern,
be entwined of flame and spirit gong
both to protect and restrain the gifts;
and thus humanity.

Within and in fine tune,
swinging now, anchored by silver thread
find soul swaying twixt mind and spirit;
and thus eternity.

Magic of this lantern,
projecting Light and reflecting soul
always in symphony with the Source;
and thus of everything.

Yet life is not simple,
For creation is the goal and trust
Love born, and midwifed by attention;
and thus of me and thee.

The trick is to hold high
your self-lantern of complexity
to cast aside the dread shadow fears,
as know to such as we.

While some wisdom flies out,
(for what else can we really share?) --
some other brilliance must sure creep in,
and thus instill learning.

Unshutter your flame,
polish the colored glass of value
that they only filter the real you;
and thus bring enrichment.

Forth and back, round about,
I flicker silently in everquest
for two lanterns that do sing as one;
and thus of me and thee.
