Journey through adversity...
The sky, veiled and bruised. Evidence of some former injury, from which it does now simmer in anger, seeking reprisal. This brooding melancholy, a restless portent of things to come.
An abrupt awakening from slumber stirred memories, uncommonly clear, but transient. Turning to times leading to this point of crossroad. A previous day of income, ended with a most absorbing final act.
Drawn together in innocuous discussion with fellow denizens. Arrogant demeanour inflated with a debonair sense of righteousness. Compassionate discourse broke forth, an exercise in connecting to the outside world. Yet ignoring the covenant of good manners, proper action a mere addendum to the thought process. Meddlesome elements sort to steer unto the relgious arena, and thus become bogged down in dogma.
A beleaguered host struggling under the weight of philistine reactions of an obtuse mind. The grim brevity of empathy shown; a breathtaking spectacle, thus encouraged a willingness to supersede. To spite surly retributions, a soothsayer revealed, to trigger the momentum of secrets unearthed. The wholesome tirade of a well-meaning raconteur.
So it ended, and a return in thought to the present, where soon the fates will decide whether to scorn or reward.
