Baptism

Over the eastern plains a storm is born

herald of the shadowed morning

at the beginning of the darkest days

Behind these walls we wait and fear

that voice out of time

summoning the dead of distant wars

to march once more beneath an iron forged sky

further from a home they forgot long ago

on a path winding through horror

seeking glory or a second death

and longing only to be washed clean 

in baptism by the falling rain

Been binge watching Forged in Fire ever since my friend showed it to me. I would love to learn how to blacksmith. Gotta start saving for the equipment!

  1. Honestly, I don’t know, why but I feel like you would make a great blacksmith. I just, like, feel it from reading your writing, lol! 😀 Another great one, btw ❤

  2. Great piece my friend. Love these lines especially,

    “to march once more beneath an iron forged sky

    Great stuff. Have an amazing week. Stay safe.
    Love to you and your family. 💕❤️Joni

    1. Woah cool! Could I ask what kind of forge you have? I was looking around online at different types. I definitely don’t live in a place yet where setting anything up would work out. My landlord probably wouldn’t be too happy about it.

      1. Well, like all these timed shows, they are working against the clock and themselves. So there’s finesse in coal forging… but also, EVERYTHING comes into play. Even the coal itself!
