As it was then and now

What this is

        Similar reasons to being written as my "item from a friend" thingy. I like that word..... thingy... ^_^ sorry I had a random moment. So where was I.... oh yes.... Well in this I describ a place.... and then in part two I describe how it is at a different time. This was two different things. And well there was confusion on how to do part two. Which leads to what the third thing it. It is my original version of part two which was a combination of part one showing the transition into the change of it over time instead of showing it at a different time separate from the first one. Okay I even confused myself with that last sentence. So yeah well there they are hope you like random person reading this.

Field of the Games

          It was a great battle held here this day. Diana’s sweet orb, Luna, rises slowly over the sky. Phoebes Apollo’s ball of fire still is up, but its light is seen disappearing through the arches. The field of the great game is laid all around, its dirt still fresh with the scarlet blood from the day’s events. The losers’ body’s, cooling and pale, are dragged away. The statues of the Lord of the heavens and thunder glow as if happy with the honor given to them this day. The days spectators are still slowly drifting out the gates with some off to dismal hallows, while others to great gold mansions. Both talk of the games. Their noise echoes everywhere but slowly disappears. The men who dragged away the bodies now mix the dirt with filthy water to clean away the blood.

         The air turns quite now as the place empties. It seems crisp an enough to chill bone. A few sounds echo from other parts of the city or from animals locked in the iron boxes below. The stone that once glowed as if gold now glows as if ghostly. Apollo’s light has given all its ground to Luna. Clouds slither in, and this place of death grows darker and darker.

The old field of the Games

It is full of glory even now.

            As those in colored shirts exit, they give off noise and flashes of light.  The dirt floor holds a great huge hole.  The setting sun shines through the broken arches.  The stone that once glowed as if gold now glows as if ghostly or with blood as passing car lights shin upon them.  The air no longer is crisp. It is dirty with fossil fuels.  The statues of the great old gods now lay mostly broken no longer to be honored by daily games.  Animals are still heard, but out in the streets, as those with their flashing cameras become drunk in the Italian nightclubs.

The clouds drift in to cover the moon, and the city lights keep light alive.

The old fields of the Games (first version)

It is full of glory even now.

            Once, this dirt was still fresh with the red blood from the day’s events.  The sun slowly set, the light, seen disappearing through the arches.  The losers’ bodies cold and pale were dragged away. The statues, of the Lord of the heavens and thunder, glowed as if happy with the honor given to them this day with the blood from the defeated. The spectators noise, the only noise, drifted out the gates. The air turns quiet now as the place empties. Only sounds were from animals locked in the iron boxes below the ground. It seems crisp an enough to chill bone. The moon and stars provided light til clouds came.

            Now as those in colored shirts exit they give off noise and flashes of light.  The dirt floor a huge hole.  The setting sun now seen with nothing in its way.  The stone that once glowed as if gold now glows as if ghostly with colored orbs reflected from cars.  The air no longer is crisp. It is dirty.  Animals are still heard but out in the streets, as those with their flashing cameras become drunk.

The clouds drift in to cover the moon, and the city lights keep light alive.

Just for fun
