Echos fall from heavens 

To paint worlds embrace 

To breathe life into reality 


Rhythms fall as guides  

To reveal songs of life 

To seek weary souls 


To seek loves embrace 

As they seek themselves 

As they seek each other 


Through times embrace

I shall seek you 

As you seek me 


Your song will save me 

As mine shall save you 

And silence my embrace

Tristan Barnard

BSc Wood & Wood Product Science,

This poem draws inspiration from the song “Helvegen” by Wardruna and the idea of traversing a strange world using a unfamiliar sense to save loved ones from a hell of their own design.
