Cypher ~ The Unbound
As you close your eyes the sweet smoke envelops you. The steady drum beat throbs in your ears moving up into your temples. Gradually is feel like it slows down while your body steadily becomes almost unbearably taut with anticipation. It feels like you are being stretched and that the beat of the drum plucks you in resonance. You feel air moving over you, the currents flowing in a unique structure. You have become a leaf on a tree. The sun shines upon you and you transform its energy to energy. It feels like there is order inside you that guides the energy. Water falls upon you, the time that has past is unknown, but you know how to guide the water to nourish.
You are old, it is your time. The wind currents change and you ride the patterns towards death. At a whim the wind deposits you at your final resting place. Here the water falls upon you breaking the barrier between you and the world. Delicate patterns of life undo your binding pulling you into the earth. You travel down deep in a journey that takes generations, following the water as it etches its path from the earth. Eventually you reach the bones of the land which drink the seas. The seven arms begin to crumble and you see the light from the nearby star wash over the foul earth. Everything is transformed into crystal shining with rainbow glory. You are a leaf again and the light of the sun falls through you creating delicate shadows that race over the ground. Your tree and the neighbour cast a mountainous shadow the orbits with the sun. Everything is ordained, everything is eternal, everything has its place.
