The In Between
by Ela Lourenco
Where the land meets the sky
The warm breeze kisses the shore,
Gentle waves play under the setting sun
The Earth hums a sweet lullaby.
Night hasn’t settled, nor is it day
‘Tis almost dusk, the in-between.
That brief moment where all is still
Not a soul to be seen
Nor to see where worlds overlap
Realm portals open
To the hellscape below
Demons and monsters await
To crossover on this night
Here I stand once again
Armoured and alone
Fate depends on the outcome of this fight…

Dragon Born: Book Three
The Royal tournament, the Karnac, is fully underway. But there is deception and betrayal at every turn. Unseen dark forces are at play, both within the school grounds and out with. Even the Gods are unable to help when a new threat looms over them all.The very existence of Azmantium depends on Lara fully becoming the Child of Fire and casting aside the Shadows lurking in every corner of her beloved planet.Can she overcome the challenges that await? Will the Shadows cover the world in darkness? Only Lara and her friends can change the fate of Azmantium.
Love what you did with this – the menace present but disguised in the beauty of the scene – that’s not easy to achieve.
A superb poem.
