Cryptic House of Knowledge,
I shift around your
halls – the deep and starving
space – hungry for
ambiguity and definition!
Where is the edible material hidden?
Do you have a frozen room
where you store it for keep?
Not frantic, but fixed!!
I am fierce on my knees….
Give me what I seek!!!
A deep rumbling vibration rips through the floor, knocking me from
my roots. I hear my bones crunch and snap as I hit
The House answers. It is evident. Strong.
The rumbling becomes deeper. It is here!
I roll against a wall, for
a seeker has no haven.
The building ripples and rips,
the walls shred
and crumble around me.
I am still.
I watch as a cyclone tears down the
structure that protects me, ripping through cement
destroying all that I had known.
The outside light came pouring in and
I am exposed!!
The cyclone stopped in its spot,
turned, it found me.
My frightened frame could do nothing.
The heart could not beat.
The lungs could not breathe.
My body and I just sat in fear….
The twisting tornado did not move
from its place, but
targeted my eyes,
and I understood!
