The Old Myth of Origins (1) bw
 
View all sizes

You surface seldom now. Then you come in like the wind with the dark tide's coming. Out of the northern mists you appear, looming out of the shadows of night. It would take more than a lightning-stroke to create such an obscure ruin. A ruin to be steered clear of, not fathomed. All obscurity starts with danger. Your dangers are many.

I cannot look much but your ruined form suffers some strange injury and seems to die: Your presence survives the old myth of origins unimaginable. Perhaps you consider yourself an oracle, mouthpiece of the dead, or of some god or other. Over thirty years now I have laboured to dredge the silt from my ears, set there by your voice, coming in on the tides, I am none the wiser.  In sleepless nights you appear like vapours, ravelling to clearness on the dawn sea.

Then the dark rumours of your burial amongst the tide-line move me to half-believe: your reappearance proves rumours shallow. The sun sinks under the pillar of the earth and the sky's ridgepole. My hours are married to your shadows.

Ages beat like rains on the unbeaten channels of the ocean. You defy my questions why; you defy what your god promised. I’m left alone on your kingdom's border, exiled to no good, exiled to aloneness for eternity forever remembering. Your shelled bed I remember. This thick air is murderous. I would breathe water.
