5. drabble FoTR

The Great River

Under the moon’s white rind we glide, ripples in the great river. Wrapped in elf-cloaks and our own thoughts, we become invisible. Eyes gleam in dark water. Bereft of guidance, we finally learn to share what we know.

We pretend to have made no decisions, submitting to Anduin’s will.

Wings haunt us, waking and dreaming. Swans cry dark re-birth; eagles soar, unconcerned for earthbound travelers. Yet when the dark stoops for the kill — we rally, crowned with stars.

Hope surges under the gaze of the kings, but we will never make this decision. Fate calls; we will be swept away.
