Thursday photo prompt: Light #writephoto

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a woodland scene with a dusting of snow and the sun, rising as a rayed orb through the boughs of a tree.

The Light.

Many miles away from where Thraun had taken Rachel, Lisa and Alicia where traveling through the wilds. Gathering as many men, dwarves and elves as they could find to join with them in the fight against the vampires.

Lisa turned to Alicia and they spoke as one, ” Thraun has delivered Rachel, she is with her kind. ” “Yes” said Alicia, ” I hope she has more good luck than we are having.” The two witches had travelled miles and seen hardly anyone on their journey who was either fit or willing enough to join them. So far they had only found fifty men, ten of which were women and children, a score of draves but no elves. Their hope was that the elves were all together and marching to meet then as promised.

The harsh winter was taking its toll on everyone and everything. It was all the harsher for being an unholy winter not a natural one. Lisa shielded her eyes against the winter sun, shed turned to Alicia and asked, ” The news Corvus brought us about the death of Mathew, is it definitely true? ” Alicia reined her steed in and looking Lisa in the eyes replied quietly. “Yes quiet true and sadly Rachel knows the time and manor of his passing. Though as it came to her in a dream she may choose to ignore it for now.”

Lisa felt such pain for her friend Rachel who had lost so much, her lover and her child.

The witches carried on in silence. Cold and tired but not defeated. Back at the Castle Ewan was making progress, gaining strength, regaining his memory of the terrible battle. Luckily his mind was processing the information this time. He was regaining his strength ready for the next battles.

Which each dawn he greeted the stragglers that arrived through the castle gates, either by chance or by the witches guidance. All who arrived at the gates were fed and found lodgings and trained by those soldiers true and valiant who had survived that evil battle.

Rachel stood on a hill miles away looking towards the weak winter sun, as did Ewan from his castle Ramparts. They were imploring the fates for a miracle.

The two witches approached a copse where they could see men, many men. The two stoppeda looked toward the trees where the sun was shining through. Like a beacon. Afraid to admit to eachother what they saw masses of men, drawves and by far the most welcome sight, beautiful tall blonde haired blue eyed elves.

The sun glowed like an orb through the trees like hope spreading it’s light. At once the witches, Rachel Ewan and Calador the elf all communed with the light. Their souls flew up the light and travelled far above the world. There they met and felt the warmth of millions of souls past, present and future. They were all gathered up in the warmth and before they left the holy place they felt and received new strength and hope.

One by one they returned to their bodies, Rachel last as she had found the beautiful and newly whole soul of Mathew there.

Once they were all back in their reality they were happy in the knowledge of being one. And so every group now marched toward the Castle and the stronger Ewan. The four remaining races united and ready to face the Vampires. All full of hope.

Song Lyric Sunday. Unity.

Today for our Song Lyric Sunday Prompt, Helen Vahdatihas given us the word Unity to play with.

Now the prompt unity was very kindly suggested to Helen by Felicia Denise.

Well I had to go with Queen One Vision . I have all Queen’s Music and boy does this one fit the bill. It was released as a single in November 1985 and then included on their 1986 album A Kind of Magic. It was originally conceived by Roger Taylor

The words are in the video.

It’s wonderful I love it!

One step, one heart one mind?

One step, one heart one mind forward together. Towards a  dream of  united mankind.

One thought, one notion, one urgent quest if only we could understand what we are doing wrong then we could unite at last for the best.

One faith, one notion, one idea on the line. To help each other, to reach out in honesty and care  to encourage each other towards a blessed finish line.

One song, one beat,one rhythm the lyrics are a chant that we can share. One drum,one voice one hum. We need to address nature, our mother planet needs a lot of care. We need to save our planet if we don’t there will be worse to come.

One love, one reason one whole and bless mankind. We need to forget our differences and nations and leave war and hate behind. Fear, hunger and greed we must sweep away we need to unite as one people and save our planet for we will perish if we let mother earth slip away.

One dance, one step one choreography. Lets us move together and feed the starving and set the oppressed free.

One chance, one hope one seed of a thought . We must work together to save our souls and our minds we cannot go on as we are we must leave our selfishness behind.
