Lost Things in the Sea

This is not your Earth
It is one of the Adjacent Places
in the Archipelago of Water Worlds

Retrek falls within the gloom
Singing a song of . . .
Hard to tell in human terms
Sings in minor chords
Of a . . . a something
That is lost
He sings of nothing else

In the Deep Darkness
In the place beyond the edge if the map
There are creatures – ghost angels
Who are specks of light
Tiny glowing points in the darkness

Creatures flickering in the Darkness
Who have never seen the Light
Who communicate
By twinks and glimmers

Sheterrah was one such ghost angel
Drifting the strands of the flickering network
Their collective song of light

Sheterrah was easily bored
And she talked with her friends more out of a sense of obligation
Until she drifted across Retrek

She tried to talk to him, to this falling Leviathan
But he ignored her
She circled his . . . well his head
It was the part in the front
She tried to dance his attention
She tried to flicker a conversation
Just his ongoing lament . . .

Then she saw the hole in him
It was universes across to her
And there were energies flickering
Within the hole

She could not imagine
what would cause such an injury
