Sky Swallowed

The sky swallows and gapes; stars move in a frenzy never seen in any of my lifetimes.

Upon the grass, I wait.

It is coming. I am sure and ready. Tonight, everything will be possible.

The blood from sacrifices anoint my body. I prepare the right rituals.

The fire crackles.

Nothing happens.

The cold air that kisses my face has now begun to warm.

Woods around me are awakening.

Then there is nothing.
