In this oneiric tale I am invited to partake by my anima in a beautiful although frightening challenge.

I am then led steadily downward towards an underground chamber to encounter the Keeper of this subterranean domain.

The painting Tierra Vuelo – Prometea (Earth Flight – Promethea) is related on several levels to the poetry included in this post and subtly suggests the theft of the fire of creativity or creation.

Cumbrous Cave Fulvous Throne or Don the Fend Folly

A slightly sloped sidewalk

downward I do stride

multilevel sea view Anima me guides

diminutive ridge handrails trace scene tide

She’s close to sheer cliff

vegetation prime eyed.

Hesitation unwelcome in sharing her view

“come closer to edge observe down bijou”

nerve racked and alarmed reach rail I approach

slope height even lower this vertigo broach

prostrate and face up look down from the floor

tight torso slight lifted safe gaze eerie score.

Distinct invitation trail down passage way

I see water in exit sand also conveyed

(though not as effective construction dismayed).

We embark descent stroll routeing terrain encounter

basement dungeon is dark earthy flow moisty mountain

old hermit custodian ancient guardian fine wreaker

realm artifact steward dormant wine wisdom keeper.

Plank summit top table ornate vitreous bright jar

prepackaged clear pairs full round from afar

glass cradle of earplugs seem ripen rouge grapes

uneven cut boulders sum daunting landscape.

Reach crystal container retrieve packaged pair

(and ask the old man if it’s true that I can

He replies “No” emphatic, “tis mine, not to share.”

I mock to myself – ‘No worries Sultan…’)

plenty they’re from and remain with no care.

I don the fend folly grape earplugs of ice

two globules cold ears stroll cellar suffice

daft domain demands unearth once them all

rule dungeon quite tricky as slab made step stones.

Flight vertical labyrinth

Cumbrous cave Fulvous throne.
