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…

  1. Love what you did with this – the menace present but disguised in the beauty of the scene – that’s not easy to achieve.
