Journey To The Cross-Roads

Silence gathers; darkness harries the land. Our moment of peace has passed, vanishing with Gondor’s grace into a misty dream.

We mark the stations of the cross-roads. Our road is dark, yet once it ran from the Tower of the Moon to the Citadel of the Stars… lights in blackness.

Storm screams at my back; my fate fawns at my feet — but I have taken the hand of friendship unlooked-for; seen sunlight seek the face of faithfulness.

And I have seen the king, crowned with stars rising from the rich dark earth, still watching our path.

They cannot conquer for ever


I have become involved with a group at Henneth Annun attempting to retell Tolkines stories in the 100 word prose-poems known as drabbles.

This was my chapter for Book Two: The Two Towers
