The Fall

We are among the fallen,

both human born and heaven wrought,

the ones who chose to be gods

instead of children.

Sentenced to wait for the light

between the seasons of abundance and loss

we find ourselves on this long eve,

winter’s solstice just a glimmer

of icy promise on the horizon.

Sentenced to decipher the words of man,

those of us who seek out nature’s scrolls

will find the hidden way to the middle path

until we rise again.
