Falling stars give light to this city

commanding all who kneel beneath them

to taste ash and dust

in communion with forgotten gods

Then pile high the effigies and burn them

their death a signal to the wilds

breath of iron forged into this new machine

ready to wake from its slumber

and lay waste to lands once holy

Ever tried your hand at worldbuilding? How detailed did you get?

  1. Well-thought out worlds are a reflection of what we could be if only we had the time of an author to sit and plan so diligently! I enjoy world-building; it is an investment of time well spent. ❤
