Hyperion’s Path

Beyond Our Sight

Along the bright street of the sky

Where stars amass before my eye

Hyperion treads cloaked in the dark

Taking paths by starlight marked

He wanders past a shimmering sun

Seeking a galaxy that has just begun.

There, free from war, he’ll start anew,

His first actions as the morning dew,

Where, to lay upon a new grass of dawn,

And banish away the yester lawn

of crimson blood, of defiance cried,

of hope new born even as it died,

Into the primordial soup he’ll look

To find redemption of the paths he took

While in this realm of our mortality

Contenders of the past all are we

Who seek new life as fresh fallen rain

To wash away misspent actions’ pain.

Yet garbed in memory’s wrinkled folds

we may yet find the wisdom of the old

and so become wiser than when we were

a part of newness on time’s endless shore.

Life just keeps coming at us, and we're all helpless to be other than a part of it's cycle!!!

I got a year older this year! That's better than the other options!!!

Hey, I got me a new hardback of "The Hobbit," and a hardback "Silmarillion." I'm going to read the whole five book thing again soon!!!!!!!!!

There's all kinds of stuff that I feel is being lost, and some of it intentionally...under the guise of "modern science."

Me too! I just celebrated my b-day.

Have you seen the Hobbit movie trailer? It looks soooo good. I've been meaning to read the Annotated Hobbit. Have you ever googled artwork for the Silmarillion? Some of the stuff out there is amazing!

Yeah, I hear ya on things being lost. But there are things being found too!

OOOoooohhh!!!!!!!!! The trailer looks AWESOME!!!! I mean, it really looks like another winner, it might be even better than we can imagine - P. Jackson has had all this time to ruminate over this stuff, and think of improvements!
