Glimmer: Within the Trio

BorromeanRings-Trinity

“Within the Trio”

by A.L.

In the tense silence, a tremor passes from each soldier to the next.

“Engage!” Discordant mayhem engulfs the cry.
Within the swarm, sight conquers, deciphering enemy from ally.

Two allies swirl around the advancing center that is me.
Focusing past them, I track then disarm fragments of the enemy.
In the end, we straddle the army that understood nothing of our power, our unity.


Within the Trio” (2009) was originally posted as a response to a trigger challenge.
