It’s a journey long
Where meeting treachery joins the day 
And the sound of hooves becomes brotherly ;

The Land of The Flame is far
Passing forests and streams 
Even dreams
Even dreams ;

Time to rest       
Both of us need sustenance 

From behind the rocks a lone cat approaches
Settles itself down nearby 
It is unafraid........relaxed.........still ;

I take its paw in mine
And it looks at me ;
We come in peace       both of us
Each seeking what we do not have 
What we must possess ;

She wishes me to stay.........I sense it
Needs something more than earth and sky
The caress of the breeze ;
She needs more 
As do I ;

Looking up I realise
There are no birds in this place 
And nothing flies 
                               but us..........
