Hatchling

Haciman

Haciman

In a Heaven
Within a Heaven
Within another Heaven
Floats a being
Within a World
Awaiting birth
As an egg
Awaits hatching
He has been here
For an age
Waiting
Growing
Gathering himself
For this moment

He pushes outward
The crack appears
The scream starts
Primal and urgent
Distending the
Membranous sac
Stretching
Distorting
The shell splinters
Shatters
The screams echos
With rage
His face presses
Against the sac
Pulling flesh taut
against bones
Claws pierce
Shreds the membrane
Anguish torments him
One last time
As the final
Soul wrenching
Scream lets out
The wings break free
The world falls away
Haciman is hatched

The Heaven is silent
Save for him
Haciman
Golden monkey
Winged monkey
Monkey god
God of War
God of Chaos
God of Life
And Death
Whimpers
As he floats
Bat like wings
Draped wetly
Breaths come
In sharp jabs
Sweat drips
as does tears

With an aching groan
Haciman looks to see
His new realm
It is much like
His old one
A swirling chaos of blues
empty yet confining
He is god here
No mother suckles him
No father succors him
He will find things
Eat
Grow
Finally
exceed the boundaries
Of this heaven

Haciman sobs
Knowing the depths
Of pain to be endured
To be born
Again
Chosen
For this task
By his God
Haciman bears it
wears it
Survives it
Rules it

Eventually
Haciman
Keeper
of the flame
Soul saver
Will
Out

About rokuth

With a few exceptions, all the prose poems I have posted are at least a decade old. A reflection of some of the things I've lived through. New ones seem to be emerging, though... The blogs are more current. Rokuth = Ro(dney) Ku(lanayagam) Th(illiampalam) 'Khanahdhara' is actually a Sci-Fi/Fantasy story I'm working on.
