Silence falls across the land,
A struggling arm sinks beneath the sands.
The imminent arrival due in time,
When everything is foreseen, everything is fine...
That which forebodes a coming storm,
Cool as ice, yet strangely warm.

Silence falls across the land,
The Time of Testing is close at hand.
Now we shall see whether you truly comprehend,
The nature of that which you try to defend.
Whether it is you who is bent or you who bends,
For if you know not then do not contend.
If you are ready, then answer me this:
Have you yet pierced the mist?

Silence falls across the land;
An idle finger plucks myriad strands.
For what is Life, and what is Death,
What has come, and what has left?
When you see all things and see them true.
The Dark of Dusk and Morning Dew.

Silence falls across the land,
And so you are caught in the outstretched hand.
Now it's too late, you're out of time,
So face your judgment from one not divine.
Face the Wrath of Ice and Flame,
And nothing will ever be the same...

Silence falls across the land,
The Storm has passed beyond these sands.
All is calm, so listen to the voices thine,
Everything is foreseen,
Everything is fine....

Actually no- I didn't link my 'Silence' to yours.. I believe this is the first time I'm reading this work of yours now. Thanks for the comment though. I always find it funny when people come across each others' work and sees a small resemblance completely out of coincidence :) hehe.

I enjoyed reading this. Very good write. Amazing imagery!
