On The Final Trail, Into Beyond Understanding I

In this, be ye true... In all honesty, to Self Where me, in 'I', lives. _____*____ Now, in his own elder years The Wanderer came to the top of Eagle’s Beak. There, not really surprised He found the Antlered Man and Laughing Master Waiting.. for him They knowing...something... Or just chance? One never knew with either of these two. _____*____ Both smiling, they rose from where they were seated. The Antlered Man only nodded as he walked by Gently touching his own heart with his right hand And then pressing it softly to my own heart place… I could feel the Wild’s of Nature suddenly stirring, vibrant, alive Free, myriads of dancers readying themselves For twilight meetings in Moonlight’s abandonment. I well remembered Keeping them all safe. ‘They know your Spirit is with them’, he said ‘This next night is for you.’ He looked deep into my eyes, my heart responding ‘Know you are forever attached, as you so wish. ‘I know you to be true’, he added, smiling ‘We will meet again’. As he passed, he finished by saying ‘Remember this Place, It did your journey well See you again in the Other’. Then, He was gone I could feel his presence leave. Of course, the Laughing Master chuckled. He too walked over, then stopping... Looked deeply too, into my eyes ‘I must admit’, he said, ‘It wasn’t all funny now, was it’. ‘No’, I said, ‘Though at times it was... Sometimes, even hilarious But always? Never that.’ ‘Such are the journeys of we men’, he nodded ‘Remember well our Times For the Chunks they are… So many made for dancing. Hmm, might have been the most important lesson… Freeing you from many sad places. For sure, allowing you to see many Gates So many missed in the past. Going to be interesting to see what you do with all this.’ He reached up then and with his index finger Gently touched my forehead ‘Ah, nothing’, he said, chuckling more. ‘What dreams are things... Lesson learned!’ Then he too walked away. ‘See you later Crocodile’ he said loudly And laughed, as he disappeared. ‘After a while Alligator’ I replied, smiling... Sometimes... the thought came suddenly to me Just shared smiling, can be so comforting. Then walking over to the overlooking ledge I too, did loudly laugh... And like so many before me Leapt off into Nothing... To meet my expecting ‘I’.
