The Ninth Tale of Something Vaster – “The ReBeginning: Eagle”

The ancient dust slides off my back as I shift and waken.

Lumbering forward, I barely notice the myriad of skulls my talons crush into powder.

The sun calls to me and I deeply breathe in the warmth to fill the hollow spaces of my bones.

Tornadoes form from the first few beats of my wings as I rise above the inevitable ensuing destruction.

Crisp, bright air enlivens me as does the plane of silence I soar within.

I shift my weight and the ocean is soon below me.

Drifting easily on salty airwaves, I put all my focus on the water until I find him.

His shadow grows within the water as does mine on the serene surface – so we see one another now.

I spread my talons toward the rising tentacles and we once again struggle in the Final Dance To Begin All Things Again.
