SCENE 1 – Deep Night in the Forest of Dreams and Whispers…
Sisters, place the blades away, here in the shelter of the cavernous mound, full of shadowed truths, in shallow pools. We’ll watch our predators, shuddering in mimicry as we bubble from the stream. Sweep in the force of the keening sprites, enlivening fate for emptiness minds. We shine, in majestic permission, proud sisters, let us slice the fold that catches on our pact. We drive the separation into the wailing realm. Begone to it!
Watch the steps from perches now, through glass eyes and symbols, we’ll see the fall and the rise of all who seemed returning to the fold, as we bid our minds, ‘drink deeply from the cup of making’, we’ll quench the thirst of our holy flames. We may be, as rainbirds, to choice we survive.
We’ll touch the hem of Lightness here, from which we emerge, in time and cacophony of song and siren. We’ll seek the wild in every dying, in the birth of all that never dies.
