Sundry Scenes

The Cove

    Waves, black and devilish
Dance on jagged shards of rock
       Grey wind and vapors

The Dungeon

 Groans in the darkness
Echoes of water dripping
     Hysteric laughter

A Wedding

      Peals of bright bell-song
Breathless stillness, solemn oaths
        Arms entwine, a kiss

The Clouds

    Giants' hammers clash
Thunder and havok resound
      Tears for the fallen

From A Mountaintop

      Sunlight and cold air
The sweeping scene before me
        I have been chosen

The Oaks

     Sad and old, yet proud
In summer green, autumn gold,
         By winter barren
