A Shiver of ecstasy worked it’s way beneath the crust into the rich damp soil grasping for the dense layers of bedrock.
The earth gasped at the audacity of men. Her fury rose to the surface with a deafening roar, shaking, trembling; spewing the vehement curse of Adam beneath their feet.
The Father withdrew his light from the planet’s surface as men shrieked in terror fleeing from the grisly visage of the Redeemer mounted atop the hill. Evil grinned; the flesh writhed in agony.
The breeze hung motionless in reverence as the last weak current of air pushed it’s way from the human form that hosted it’s commander.
“Holy Breath, summon us.”
Moving in rhythmic captive cadence, pushing it’s way toward the lifeless form, the four corners of the wind gathered it’s rage. Burgeoning clouds closed in around the lifeless host of heaven, expelling their grief in acrid bursts of light and energy. How dare they?

Sound ceased her vibrant flow—no words? No words?
“Oh…don’t go from me…”
Evil watched with greedy eyes as the planet convulsed in horror. ‘They’re mine now…’

“Comfort your Master.” The delicate flower stationed across His cold chest in repose, gracing the linens of death.
Glory withered as the captured tear rolled from its fragrant cup.
“I will lay with you through your sweet slumber, Master.”
