Between the fey and the fable
Where mythic motes in miry meadows dwell
Over the hallowed hills unveiled
The gleaming trail returns with elder spell
To elevate

Writhing, windworn, amidst the dimming shadows
Duskbearer, in the hazy nightmist
Seeping outward from the deep dreamhollows
A burdened procession in cursed ambience
Enshrouded in auratic glow
Sorcerous seers make their way below

The lashing winds in tempestuous might
Pierce the billowing wall, the enfeebling blight
The gloomy path, revealed in the silence
Evoking passage and windborne guidance
Channelling, the seers return
To culminate their conjuring
Reaching beyond, unworldly bond

Forlorn was the coming morn
That tore through the breaking winter
For it carried the wounds of time and grievance
As echoes of the passing night
Resound toward a starry aether
Ephemeral in their flight
Fading to wisps of woodsmoke

And so as the cosmic arch
Descends on the silent forest
The astral cloak is cast, enduring
The dawnkeepers flee afar
Soaring to a distant never
The blessed mists depart
Borne on winds of woodsmoke

Between the ever and the after
The long ages and bygone tales past
Held in the sweeping landscape dormant
Awaiting the cry to call apart
To resonate


from Gateways, released May 3, 2016
