The Mists of Time.

The Mists of Time.


The mists of time and sense of place

Can sometimes merge just in that space

The thin veil and barriers, so difficult to breach

Just beyond our furthest reach

Tantalize and tease, in a dreamlike trance

Soul and tribal memories, in the shadows dance

In the memories and hearts of men

We have long since lost and forgotten

The many sacrifices made and battles fought 

For the knowledge we so eagerly sought 

But lack the wisdom to apply 

We fail to listen and then wonder why

In a vain attempt to reveal

What is shadow and what is real.
