Poetry: Mother's Hands (Inspired by Thornwatch)

5-Oct-2016

This is a poem I wrote about Lone Shark Games' latest creation, Thornwatch. I have some thoughts on a tune and will post a rough cut of the song as soon as possible.

MOTHER'S HANDS


I awaken at first light

With tame trepidation
Her hands, a blur, spinning, spinning,
Coax grace into the fight.

 

Her swords brush,
Her feet flutter –
All steps, intricate, to her dance.
Someday I must have Mother’s hands
If we’re to stand a chance.


Her voice drips of honeyed sun.

She calls me to her rightly.
“Stand steady, little briarlock;
This foe you can’t outrun.”

 

Leather-supple,

Battle-bred,
Nimble as crackling fire
My strength will come from Mother’s hands
To best the blighted choir.

 

Pink and purple wisps of sky
Join to block the sun
Ebb descends, and I realize
Mother’s hands have been undone.

Now that I’m grown, with Mother’s hands,
I must venture through the thorns
To call upon our guardians,
So I may live to mourn.
