Glimpses of Kaer Gwynfyd

by Kynran

[WVox Sponsor]

Age Group: Adult

Sentinels in Stone stand we
Grasping the gargantuan gate -
Impenetrable structure adamantine
Of terrifying dimensionality
That blights with vertigo extreme
Th'unwary wand'rer by symmetry bizarre,
A veritable feast of hyperbolic façades.

Sculpted by hand transcendent
Of the tireless Warden
To an Interminable Web -
A reptilian duad,
As if in sleep profound
Yet ever vigilant in realms
Of measure imperceptible.

Speak the word
In argot long-forgotten -
"Sefyll ar wahân!"
Command that swift compliance fires
To stir the stony beasts from slumber.

And with the postern widely thrown,
Behold, if indeed thou durst,
The rolling lawns of Kaer Rigor -
A Realm where speech is still’d
Yet dialogues both fresh and fleet
And truly instantaneous
Remain perpetual convention.

Thy consciousness endures
As shimmering aurum -
A miniscule sparkle
Of awareness everlasting,
Borne forth in quadriga*
Of Royal Beleu
To verge of perpetuity.

There skies of deepest purple
(Strange yet bright) illuminate
In pellucid silver glow
This mystic realm
Of splendour immeasurable -
A Multiverse incomprehensible.

Each path and highway
Bears thee up, withdrawing
Heaviness and morbid care
From off thy frame;
Infinite serenity and love
Of a mother's gentle clasp -
Thy muted mantle of faint gossamer,
Surrounds thee in thy wand'rings.

Overawed by vistas inconceivable,
Lo hast thou found
The Paradise of Raptures,
Divinest Dwelling-place
That ever was thine own.

(* quadriga = a chariot pulled by four creatures)

Author's Notes: Are Bellian transmissions simply an archaic memory?

Sefyll ar wahân! - "Stand apart!"
