Ever since I started writing poetry back as a kid, I’d randomly get ideas for first lines. These first lines I would commit to paper and eventually turn into a poem. This particular first line has been with me for a long time but a poem never seemed to want to form around it, that was until last month. I was looking over my first lines to see what ideas would spark and boom, that one took life. I don’t normally write my fantasy stories in a poetry format, but hey, that’s what came to me.
