Mystery in the midst

Listen to the eerie echoes
of the ebony
night
swiftly sprawling
into foggy
daylight
conjure this
in your mystical mind
the magical ways
of medieval times
when noble knights
still had demons
to slay


Do you hear the
sinister snorting
from steamy nostrils
of steadily approaching
beasts

Do you feel the
frightening vibrations
of heavily hoofed feet
readily rising in the
east

Do you feel the
treacherous tremble
as they appear in their
sullen shadowy
shroud

Do you dare to
watch their
emergence
from mysterious darkened
cloud

Are you quite
ready
to see them riding their
hooded red eyes
ablaze

For they will rise up
and they will soon
loom
these caliginous cloaked horsemen
spreading fear
imparting
doom

Hide your faces
protect your souls
dark riders are
coming to collect
their
tolls…

Artist's Description

FEATURED: Midnight Ramblers July 2010

In collaboration with an amazing photographer, Andy Gibb Thank you Andy, for allowing me to put humble words to your magical images!

When this image spoke to me, it asked for a little darkened mystery… it wanted something different, pehaps something a little more sinister, more mysterious and solemn …and this is the tale it wanted me to tell…
