Lore illuminated ~ Bones

lands imagined by eye and ear

Small screams drew us from far and wide through a sun-dappled valley of rosewood and pyne to the edge of a great field of green — but a green of vein-blue hue it was, like an ocean stained with jealousy. There in the deep of that sweetgrass sea stood a twisted old ironwood tree.

It snaked skyward, spawn of a gray strain unknown, ominous, lost, at anchor alone, a strange scurvy pirate, no skull but all bones, bleeding black sap like bile.

  1. The picture has a very spectral feel to it. Very appropriate.

  2. Thanks David! Yes, Michael really captured something in this image…
