Night Clashes with Light



















Night dressed in  a cloak of velvet black
distant  dreams between heaven and earth
mystical stories woven fabrics of life giving birth
silver stars dance,  two light hearted fools on track

Captain Pat at the helm under a crescent moon
Truedessa  playing her drum, chanting songs
spotted cat curled at her side, where he belongs
somewhere, a golden lute plays a magical tune

A hunter, Orion takes form in the constellations
waves of emotions fills the green foaming seas
signaling upcoming danger for the traveling three
Truedessa senses some unusual vibrations

From beneath, dark murky waters start to churn
Captain Pat bellowing "hang on we're in for a ride"
Truedessa  and the cat quickly stand by his side
ship whirls, sudden tremor causing concern

entering another realm ominous under world
two dark hideous eyes,  a giant scorpion king
thrashing through water,  a beast who can sting
reddish brown skin, poisonous venom is hurled

Trio on guard, steely blades in their hands
Truedessa shouts  "who summons us to this place"
goddess of dawn, cries dressed in white lace
prisoner of  Hades, stealing light from the lands

Beware of the stinger as the scorpion spins
Captain Pat and the cat under a brutal attack
Truedessa slams her sword into the beast back
we will win this battle before a new day begins

a jolt, Truedessa cries, Captain Pat feels her sting
spotted cat quickly jumps standing by  her side
Hades laughs, soon there will be no place to hide
Suddenly, an arrow pierces the beast with a zing

rolling waters, orbs of twinkling light fill the sea
Orion, hunter of the sky dives into the depth below
Captain Pat declares, hurry this place is going to blow
this time the scorpion will not win,. Hades quickly flees

on their sunken ship , roaring volcano ready to bust
Captain Pat at the helm the trio form a strong ring
the goddess of dawn slowly  rises and begins to sing
they shoot from the sea, in a haze of volcanic dust

emerging to the surface,  steadying their rocking ship
flickering over the horizon, dawns yellow orange rays
goddess of light,  two light hearted fools in a daze
Orion resting in the sky, they continue their trip

Mystical night, a new dawn but, will they find Bora Bay???

  1. Look at the trio go
    Damn, got sucked down below
    The cat got wet hair
    That doesn't scare
    But must piss him off
    All begin to scoff.
    Hades must die
    The damn guy won't fry
    The beasts are something to behold
    Could sell them for lots of gold
    But then they aren't nice
    So they paid the price
    Thankfully there was help from above
    These tales I love

  16. Styx is dangerous waters, not for the fainthearted. I guess the Goddess of dawn was without Charon's fee and had to resort to the mercy of the adventurous three. A fine rescue for sure!
