Gate Keepers : 8

They grew, these humans grew, they learnt  to build and make weapons new.

First wooden spears  and clubs  then flint and stone always they found a way to do

Just what suited them. Taking  always taking, never giving back

Gouging out huge holes, leaving scars never caring for mother nature never giving back.


They killed the beasts  they killed the birds then they began to kill each other.

The earth began to weep, stunned by the humans greed, she wept like any mother.

The gatekeepers sighed, they had seen the future they knew what was in store.

They could neither stop nor intervene they had seen the future and wept at what they saw.

They watched their gates, they protected their portals

Ensuring that the thresholds were never darkened by any mortals.

Still the humans grew  in might and greed perhaps in knowledge

Sadly the knowledge  was blinkered, and so towards destruction the surged and fled.

    Mother Nature can only weep bitter tears when the most capable does not help and care for the less endowed but instead abuses his position and power.

    What parent can endure the pain inflicted on her child – by another of her children.

    Keep writing my dear, I’m enjoying this series.

    Peace and blessings,

      I am so pleased you like this Eric , yes such grief no mother wants to see her children divided, fighting arguing. As to the saga even I am not sure what the gate keepers will have to witness yet!xxxxx

    I’ve just listened to ‘A Quiet Man’. It was a lovely tribute. A fighter for rights, I like I do.
