The last song of the sun

2020

Eye of the world, hovering in the center and holding us in his power,
the sun burns the land in his final rays of light.
Wounded mirror of our madness and of our destructions,
he sings his last song.

It is a song of anger and sadness.
A song of burning light and growing darkness,
of glowing rocks and melted sea.
Of blazing embers, of fading ashes.

It is a song of anger and sadness.
A song of destruction, a song of liberation.

It is a song for the dying land.
Sung—until both the sun and the land he mourns return to silence.
