The Last Soul

Description

“Lathan was falling, not fast or slow.  It was almost like gliding. Comfortably gliding toward a bright light. Specks of white were racing by him, or he was racing past them. He couldn't quite tell. Some lights even seemed to be circling his body. Although they zipped by quickly, the journey took a long time. Some lights pulsed and seemed to pace him. He wasn't sure what to make of that. All he felt was peace, acceptance of where he was, and where he was going.

The bright light didn't change in size, until it did. It seemed so distant for so long, never changing. Then it grew and grew. The light was getting larger rather quickly now. It was tinted gold, like yellow flames on the outside of an orb. Right when he passed through the light, those same golden flames licked at him and warmed his whole body. Before it was like traveling through a dark tunnel that was speckled with pinpricks of light, now everything was twilight and open.”

Finally free from his isolated past, Lathan Greywind is living a stable life with his wife and newborn daughter as a taiko drum coach at UC Davis. Events outside of his control force him to take action.  Faltering against the mundane and the supernatural, he is thrust into a reality he doesn't understand.  A reality filled with sentient life and power that has a will of its own. Lathan must learn to harness his newfound abilities before he can return home to his family. If he can only figure out how!

Latest Poem

He rode an old McClellan that had seen better days

But he sat up there like a king who controlled all he surveyed

His mount a buckskin mare as pretty as you’ve seen

With legs meant for working and eyes bright and clean

Behind him trailed a mule, a fine example of the breed

A pack piled high with goods but no halter or a lead

 

I asked him where he’s headed and where he might have been

The reason for his travel and what he might have seen

“I’ve seen the greatest country that God ever made

Sometimes mountain vistas, sometimes a grassy plain.

I’ve seen family members who make me feel ashamed

And many fellow workers who lie their way to fame

 

I’ve seen herds of caribou clicking cross the plain

Massive Mountain Grizzlies, great horses wild and tame.

I’ve seen massive progress ended by greedy fools

Or by those who need control and impose silly rules

And others stopping growth by thinking with their heart

When simple logic tells ‘em the horse is behind the cart.

 

We all get our little chance but others need a turn

The younger need some room to grow to build to learn

When I’ve done my time, my life here is thru

I don’t want my final vision to be only gloom and fools.

I’ll be free of all that as will the mule and mare

We’ve trod the greatest land, together scenery shared

 

It all makes my former life shallow and pale

And now where I travel nothing is ever stale

I’ve had my days of wealth measured in dollars and cents

With days, weeks and years surrounded by wall and fence

But now I have much more, a far greater treasure

Surrounded by natures wonders, beauty that can’t be measured

 

 

Any measure of success may not be right for all

The test that has some rise up will make others fall

I hope the path I travel and the message that I preach

Will be heard and understood by people that I meet

No one has the right to say that my view is wrong

Nor do I have the right to condemn another’s song

 

But enjoy the journey and help your fellow man

Have a laugh and learn, and make a proper stand

For something you believe, give it a proper fight

And if you should lose and you know you might

Within your heart you’ll know you did your very best

And did what you thought right when put to the test.
