Summon the drakes from their dens and let the sky and air and the precious ball of land pearled up inside them shimmer and dance in the sweet embrace of conflagration. Sweet terrible process. The time has come to test the gem of gems, temper the treasure of treasures in the furnace of legacy. Will the miracle live up to its potential? Will it serve as inspiration for a time ahead, or turn into ash? Surrender the living rock to the scorching hurricanes and let the destinies embrace it. Let the miracle endure or perish in the unmitigated resolve of kindled matter storming the air like a whirlwind of thousands upon thousands of years of buildup, atoms denouncing their stately shields to dance with death and with death in their eyes engage each other, splintering structure and form with their electrical whips, cracking the mantles inside whose deep and crusted idleness the world was encased. The quagmires of despair vaporized. Expelled the debris, blown away. And from the tempestuous hissing roar a scoured and composted land rises to overflow one’s hungry sight, a world fit to accommodate the vision of a generation ninety score and five generations in the making.
Baffled? Watch this space for more.
From the collection of writings EON: THE ANGRY COMING OF AGE
PS – (From Wikipedia): The name Tuesday derives from the Old English “Tiwesdæg” and literally means “Tiw’s Day”. Tiw is the Old English form of the Proto-Germanic god *Tîwaz, or Týr in Norse, a god of war and law. *Tîwaz derives from the Proto-Indo-European base *dei-, *deyā-, *dīdyā-, meaning ‘to shine’, whence comes also such words as “deity”.
The Latin name dies Martis (“day of Mars”) is equivalent to the Greek ἡμέρα Ἄρεως. In most languages with Latin origins (Italian, French, Spanish, Catalan, Romanian, Galician, Sardinian, Corsican, but not Portuguese), the day is named after Mars, the Ancient Greek Ares Ἄρης .
In Japanese, the word Tuesday is 火曜日(ka youbi), meaning ‘fire day’ and is associated with 火星 (kasei): Mars (the planet), literally meaning “fire star”. Similarly, in Korean the word Tuesday is 화요일 (hwa yo il), also meaning fire day.
In the Indo-Aryan languages Pali and Sanskrit the name of the day is taken from Angaraka (‘one who is red in colour’) a style (manner of address) for Mangal, the god of war, and for Mars, the red planet.
In the Nahuatl language, Tuesday is Huītzilōpōchtōnal (Nahuatl pronunciation: [wiːt͡siloːpoːt͡ʃˈtoːnaɬ]) meaning “day of Huitzilopochtli,” a Mesoamerican Aztec deity of war, sun and human sacrifice.
