Where swells the comfort tale,
Of Places and Lands of fairy vale,
Images of Tolken droll
Amidst the copper tones of Hogwarts?

What every poor Author needs
Be some dancing Image seeds,
Captured in the pristine light
Of a magical World bright.

Thought be that each should
Transport to mystical world
Where description be told and fold
Into a novel concept theme.

Classify all under Copyright sure,
But tell where the Angels curve
Into mortal beings unnerved
By the sight of the Poet versed.

2. Some out there have ordinary lives, others do not. Reality is what may be seen and smelled, but can the Senses alter? What is known becomes questionable, what is unseen acquires form. A simple journey to a local grocery may travel to unknown regions, if the Senses shift. Where will you be when Time turns into an Ocean, and the Tide goes out?

Get into your mind... very deep into your mind... into the actual center, where the blackness looms complete. Now follow... the blackness, deep at the center of your mind, is the center of the all-encompassing space-time continuum... where galaxies collide and black holes devour all that chances close by... and you... have a ringside seat. But... this is not your ordinary space-time continuum... not that of Planck, Einstein, Sagan, or Hawkins. No... this is the metaphysical universe... a universe which co-exists with our own familiar reality... occupying the same ether, but operating on a different set of principles, altogether. A great epic is about to begin. Keep your mind open and ready to take in what is to come... or what is to come might take your mind in...
Adrift in the metaphysical space-time continuum are the Spheres of existence. They are uncountable. The only Beings (that we human-kind can ever hope to see -- and that, rarely, by only the most special among us) capable of knowing the totality and reality of the Spheres are the Spirits. Notice that the Ss in Spheres and Spirits are capitalized... for they loom far, far above the common existence of us mortals. The Spirits are charged with maintaining a balance among the Spheres. Whether Yin or Yang, they care not... neither order nor chaos interests them... they are charged with maintaining the grand balance. If that requires a bit of chaos over there, and a bit of order closer over here, then they will mote it so. The Spheres will be kept in balance, no matter what it costs, or how it affects us mortals... for we are much farther down the cosmic threads of existence from the Spirits than amoebae are from us! Does that make you feel small and insignificant...? Take heart, mortal... if you are able to ken the fullness of what you are about to experience, then you are special, too. And... never surrender to the terrors of the darkness.
