silken dreams dust the air with visions unseen. tapestries woven with starlight, the faint glimmer of creation still hums soundly in the night-sky. her smile does not falter in the darkness. she burns so that others do not have to. she calls for her friend to settle beside her, so they may dream again, together. ❛ o' tiamate ... come rest with me, sing me songs from a forgotten age. ❜
—- Eos, o’ Eos: so gentle with the sunlight burned into her hair. She asked a request friendly, inviting and warm. Foreign and unwonted, and yet not. For so long had relentless mercury hues seen only FIRE & WAR; such moments were but an unfulfilled wish in an age immemorial, in the center of all. She recalled colliding orbs and volatile suns. Home was not beautiful; but violent and barbaric.
This Eden they created, received their praiseful slumbers and hilarity filled symphonies. Neither to be declined nor opposed, the heavens shall witness the peaceful choir of two. Diamonds twinkled like fairy dust upon a velvet of onyx, far above and out of their reach. Astral kin turned their backs towards the black, and void of purpose; forgot about their precious wings. They were the fallen, the stray orphans — and they could turn back nevermore. Would you miss home, my lovely ray of dawn? Just as this Siren did? But remember… Remember these stars were merely ECHOES of destruction. A yearn to fade away; thus their story at last came to an end, whilst such were not to compare to the purity of your ever reverted light. Light that had risen morning for morning as you waked again.
Did you dream, friend? Of the past? — she wondered as silver waves joined those of gold. But of course you did, what silly question. Tenderness drew a smirk with a wading shade of serenity. Honesty was to bless her reaction. Her tune, simultaneously raw but soft. “Thou wants us to sing the hymns of olden times, dear? Home calls upon us both tonight, we see.”
Fresh were these winds. So crisp, so clear did they accompany the Hydraean’s lullaby, when she rested together with the Aurora of harmony underneath moon shine.
