It was the finger of light that drove him,
Maddening whisper of almost-touch, a breath away - a world away,
Reaching into his gut and birthed by it,
Moving beyond shells,
Beneath the garbage and eaves of the undergrowth of the growing,
Moss-hewn, heavy with life and sorrow - eyes old with Grief;
Rock silent..

Within its secret societal whisper he became quieted,
Shocked by presence,
Loved by lightning,
Ice flamed,
