Wonderlust-the chronicles of Ruana a continuation

Amongst the hidden.

Picked at for centuries by decay and birds,

There is darkness,

A core so black that is flows like tar,

stains each brave heart that becomes curious.

—-

Its moans echo

Reverberating from cavernous space

The voices of the dead on the valley floor

Winding their way to the cold of the Tundra.

—-

This day the darkness shifted,

As mischief was afoot

Ruana’s hidden memory decided, sentient

That involvement was necessary

And change was afoot.

—-

The screaming of injustice

Made the darkness flow thickly

Coagulating together

In a sickly, form of man.

And so was born Brychan the Black

Torn from the mutating womb

Of something with no name.

And let loose on this world of wicked games…

To be continued

  1. This is fabulous. Dark, yet inviting I love so many lines, but especially this one “There is darkness,

    A core so black that is flows like tar,”

  2. Your chronicles are very enjoyable. You seem to have a knack for writing fantasy scenes. Vivid and well written; like the dark side to this too.

  3. Love this style of writing , mysterious, magical sometimes darkly told but enjoy the depths it takes you in your imagination…
