Dancing light
Trickles across glass

Stopping to pause
Defying the pull

A moment of rest
Then
It drops

A wave of shadow and shimmer

The Tree Line

Take a walk through the woods and you may find the bones of a behemoth strewn across the woodland floor. Tangled up with leaves and branches. You can hear the sound of their singing through the leaves of the trees, carried on the wind.

The bones of their toes are as long as your arm, and their rib cages sprawl out longer than the tallest man. The wind plays a tune on its Xylophone of bones and at dusk the bones awake.


Standing up, their silhouettes unfold. These giants stride across the land, on a journey of no destination.
