For visually challenged writers, the image shows a winter landscape, with trees by a stream and rough stepping stones across it.

The blue river runs through high bracken banks

Over ancient moss-covered rocks

Dark trees line the way with long shadows

A peaceful scene you may think.

Take care not to step into the cool water

If you have dark thoughts in mind

The one-eyed soul eater lies hiding

Waiting to take that which belongs to the dark side

His hunger is never quenched, he knows

there are many souls that carry a heavy load

His number must be filled

before despatching his catch

For cleansing, renewal

For the newly born to take their turn

He waits for one who walks the water

Clean, unmarked by time for his own release

When another will take his place…
