June/July Lite Challenge Entry: Drakanyama
Hi. I've been lurking. =) I started this on the 6th when I got inspired enough by the challenge to actually try it. Haven't gotten much sleep. **sheepish grin**
The world of Drakanyama, with the Legend of Drakani around the rim. For those of you who don't care to read upside down, it reads as follows:
Five hundred years an age of wrath,
And none could intervene,
Til one was born of Earth and Sun,
The dragon who would choose The Path.
He shed a tear for each of them,
Each one who had a scar,
And washed away the fears of men,
Water cleansing land of war.
For days the dragon's tears did fall,
For days beyond and more,
Til oceans rose to cover earth,
And not a rock sprang fore.
What will we do, the people cried,
Their homes swallowed by the sea,
Do not worry, came reply,
You'll make a home of me.
With his sisters circling round,
He lay his head near Yoki's face,
And Father Rala watching over him,
In Mother Yama's warm embrace.
Finally he wept again,
Five children of his kind,
To keep alive his memory,
And this lesson to remind.
Tread lightly and with open hearts,
Live quietly as brothers,
Take care Drakani's mighty gift,
And nurture it for others.
For if you keep your fetters snug,
With feet firmly in the past,
You shall never know tomorrow,
And your kind will end at last.
