take your branch, bend your twig find the heart that beats within
take your merry, parry thought. find a tablature of stone deep within the firefly cavern. the streams edge brought through the gloomy daylight fell over the edge of epitheral into the etherium below.. deep below the weary travellers eyes gazed an eerie mind. riddles of starlight fell before the twilight eye, gazing numbly over the touch of story tale. fall deep your rune. feel the moss growing upon the stone. find a humble tale of a dark anguish.. falling into the caverns of stone the rune fell upon an illuminated forgoten temple. the firefly's light shone upon the gems held in the dim candle's illumination.
"where are we?" spoke the gnome;
"we stand on the path to the mountain sanctuary temple. stay your gaze upon these gems, they would make a fine rune.. the monks who bore these caverns tell of a chasm which rests above a place where water flows.. follow the light through the cavern further still and you shall find a temple." spoke the wearied professore
He opened the watch in his pocket and opened his gyroscope up to the candle light.
"follow me" he beckoned after deciphering their scope.
"The air in these caverns is damp with the mist of the waterfall,take a drought if you are thirsty, their water is sweet."
They entered the sanctuary gate and walked into the couryard. There the fireflies lit up the evening. veiled in shadow four elves perched around the fountain. magic energy resonated softly within their hands, as shadow drifted through the night. they chanted softly in their tongue. A fairy fluttered under a tree and chimed upon a reed fluting a melody.
"who might you be?" asked the fairy. "my name is minerva", said she.
"nemo is my name." replied the gnome, "and this is the good professor grozby"
"indeed" uttered grozby "our quest finds us in the courtyard of emerald. you minerva may have this stone."
pulling the amethys from his breast pocket he gave a small shard of crystal to the bespectacled fairy
"magic stones?!" quirked minerva
the fireflies danced gently beneath the trees, illuminating the eyes of the elves who sat in the courtyard. their glow illuminated the rippled reflections of the pond. through wisps of mist. over the surface of the water blue lotus flowers grew upon the pond. danceding upon the face of the water. from deep below swam mermaids. their names Nelu and Vwim. bubbles floated to teh surface as Nemo looked deep into the cool deep. beneath the mermaids was coral which glowed the aurora of rainbow light. illuminating the water colors of green and purple
In teh garden plucking a tiger lily from the garden a maiden named uriel chanted softly, smelling the fragrant intoxicating smell of the flower she uttered her soft singing as the moon shone above.
"why have you come into our realm?" questioned minerva
"I seek for a fabled gem. The stone of Grom. We desire it's enchantments. the one who posseses it is dwells within the twilight temple..
uriel dropped from the tree of where she sat. as the path up the stairs leading within the twilight temple began to glow.. leading professor grozby up the path paved by weather stones
as he walked minerva followed, fluttering behind, she landed upon on his hat she sang softly. as the fireflies followed dancing as they illuminated the dusky twilight. mist flowedout of the temple's doorway.. and slowly from within emerged a wizard wearing purple robes. "mungo is his name" told the fairy. "mungo the wizard"
grozby sat upon the steps and opened a small box he had in his pocket. inside was an glowing stone.
mungo who was muttering spells softly in an ancient tongue
moonlight filled the kaleidoscopic ceiling which shone glyphs of enchanted rune inside the temple danced three priestesses, elves of the tribe of moon.
"moon elves are we" one said
"we shall open the flowers of illumination" the second elf spoke
"the glow of twilight, replenishes." spoke the third
we shall enrapture the moonlight until the shadow falls beneath
minerva crept close to the illuminare flowers which bloomed inside the garden temple
as the third moon rose over the worlds they relayed through the night and opened a oculus.. for the witch queeried of minerva.. where does the fairy minerval rest? wondered she
"in me mushroom" piped minerva
"well then" the ogrish witch replied
"tea?" asked minerva
"yes" please the witch agreed
they sipped the warm potion which was a brewed from the lotus and warmed their hearts
as the stars shone they hovered there beyond the ethereal glade warming eyes on the shining twilight
the stars glistened there and winked
a shooting star illuminated the sky in a flash of irradecence
falling from the sky a star bright upon the midnight dawn came down to the earth.. falling at mungo's feet.. he picked up the glittering stone which was resting on the mossy ground "well harum" he muttered to the stone "well what have we here..."
the mermaids beneath the waterfall song softly as the night waned on
one of the elves spoke; her name was Eluna. princess of the elves. "sad are tidings of the moons wave." her tears fell as she loomed dreamily over the well. she dipped her hands into the draw and sipped softly. her tears fell and caused ripples at the bottom of the well.
"Eluna" summoned mungo.. "come here a moment" she loomed towards the wizard who was holding the star stone which had fallen from the sky. he placed it within her hands as a gift. "many are our blessings. the night brings sorrow to your heart I see. be of good nature, breathe, drink fill your heart with gladness for the light within the shadow."
now came a procession of the princess's paige and her servants.. they brought to the weary professor, the wizard and their kin the fruits they had gathered from the orchards of the garden's sanctuary. sweet was the taste upon their lips as they slurped up the nectar." they all wear grateful for the taste upon their lips
Eluna motioned to her servants to sing with her as she began to chant her quiet song. a lullaby to the waning twilight's dawn.
softly spoken elvish rune
take your pattern sing your tune
the firefly dance in their shadow
the flight of butterflies now that know
all the moons enchanted skies
alight now ALL teh fireflies
Eluna and her entourage walked over and through the temple and crossed the bridge to her palace of which the crystal dome shone rainbow light, illuminating her home of crystal and brick
wonked the troll for he hid under the bridge between the castle and the river.
who lives hear you may wonder?
the ogrish witch methuzela.. rode her wyvern over the catacombs and through her sky of night
