Mayhaps we be reading the shadows wrong
She whispered to  Erke edging up even closer
His sword sheathed he dare not  prolong
This agony of  not knowing what monster breathed
Ahead, mayhaps we be reading the shadows wrong,
He agreed with Gurtha, quickening his stride.
Just then, in the distance, the booming of a gong.
They stood frozen, holding  breaths an eternity.
Quickly a shudder wove through the  forest,  a throng
Of sensation; forever cannot be drawn in a circle.
Shh mayhaps we be reading the shadows wrong.

  2. Oh, I love the way you take the feeling, the ambiance, and made it into this quest, which reads literally, bringing us into this adventure, but also plays with the mystical and metaphorical - "mayhaps we be reading the shadows wrong" ---- fabulous interpretation of your chosen interpretation! I really love the layers and nuances in this Gillena!
