Time Shift 27

by Denny E Marshall

Do not know the dragon
Just picked up the sword
For the first time yesterday

Etched into the shield
The coat of arms
Call from a distance time

The worn steel reflections
Mirror the upcoming peril
The action shines like a dream

The call of wind is warning
Of a fast approaching danger
A beast in the burnt orange sky

The current past not chosen
Stuck in times magic spell
Lost in unfamiliar land
