Window of the West

As daylight fades
from Henneth Annun,
the Window of the West,

a dark shadow
jumps in
for a final time

A chapter closes
as memories
packed up

over the hill
to a new chapter

Soon an empty shell
is all that remains
echoing to years gone by

Over the hill
the Window will open
near the machair

Soon to fill up
with blooms
to caress your feet

As you boldly stride
out into glorious sunlight
leaving the shadows behind

Save for the one
whose unquestioning devotion
follows you wherever you go
