By Shifting Sands the Castle Stands

The golden legend of Moreka

Tells of a stolen castle

That cannot be found by outsiders.

One chance, you could step within its fabled walls.

The faith of an innocent,

Childlike belief may one day get you there

After following the clues that change daily

Shifting landscapes, the teasing glimpse

Of a distant turret to keep you hoping

That one day you may step inside its golden gates.

When the mist is light, the road ahead short

Remember, each step you take turns your head around

The legend states it can be found

By one who has a clear day to see

To run, to grab the one chance given

To one who sees the golden gate shimmer…

  2. Very mystical ladies. My first thought was more a test of who could find this mystical keep. Very fairytale in concept that you have to believe to find. At least that was my interpretation of “By one who has a clear day to see.” I think that is an excellent line in today’s world where mindfulness escapes many.

    Another great piece of prose
