"It's a saying they have, that a man has a false heart in his mouth for the world to see, another in his breast to show to his special friends and his family, and the real one, the true one, the secret one, which is never known to anyone except to himself alone, hidden only God knows where."
-James Clavell, "Shogun"

It begins…

With the distant call of the archangel,
With the harps and lyres, their songs of old,
With the ominous flute that charms the snake.

Lulled, slowly, step by elusive step,
Into the dark and meandering tunnel
Bent to achieve light from its walls.

Now, as the flow is stalled,
The breath is held, the framework built,
Do the clock's hands fly, or remain still?

The passing clouds may yet drift onward,
As our home wanders its dreary course;
The rivers scarred her yielding face.

And still I journey onward into my tunnel,
Searching for the lyre, the flute, my archangel,
Coming ever closer...

AGAIN, another just amazing piece. your diction is amazing and you're just able to zap whatever images you want into the minds' of your readers. that is a skill held by only a true writer.
