The Eye Of The Needle

(The Watcher At The Window)

The stars glowed strangely bright in a clear, black sky; their soft touch turning to cosmic fire, the Star-born of Europa a ghostly trace gazing remotely into the night; the silence of eternity echoing off rare and segregated structures, night darkened and towering into the galactic moon-rise.

Fascinated the “Observer” watched avidly through the “window of the universe” – the rift in time and space that had appeared inexplicably on the tail of the meteorite aftermath on that cool winter’s night… Defying all natural laws it hovered gently before the watchful eyes of the Observer, stretching the full length of the laboratory and set against the backdrop of the slowly turning satellite receivers monitoring the night sky; veiled in dark shadows, playing steadily amongst the emissions of a hazy, glowing spring moon…

Soundless void, the voice of eternity dancing in the eyes of the universal Ice-wolves of Europa. Echoing separation of endless night sky calls. Resonances of eternal silence blending with the haunting night, the incomprehensibility of a star-filled void shrouding the alien structure – “the Eye of the Needle.”

Motionless in the arching structure that was the interplanetary gateway – the Eye of the Needle…untouchable… Enigmatic moon-wolf, daughter of the Europan Star Streams caught in thrall to the infinite and devastating loneliness of frozen ice cavern, looking out across acidic seas under the skies of another world.

Sequestered in the murmuring extra-terrestrial solar winds; her only whispering companion on a deadly world of isolated beauty. Rainbow rings slanting across startlingly bright moon, catching a mesmerising, multiplexed dreamscape; another-worldly dimensional-diffusion of light-induced mysteries in the genesis of worlds. The nemesis of space.

Astral-lunar wolf shivering in countless galactic mysteries, indistinct now as she regarded the startling acid seas, distant eyes lost in faraway fantasies, dreaming in the other worldly touch of outlandish lapping oceans glittering in bright astral-beams, reflecting off the golden waters of a world at the end of time. The first quarter moon a cool shimmering globe, still as a space-stone from a distant and unfamiliar world. Locked in the crystallised ice-rock dreams, she gazed out at airless, quarantined moons from the gulf of a thousand worlds.

For a moment it seemed that the interstellar Ice-wolf now walking in direct line towards the Observer turned startling azure eyes, burning fiercely with the power of the stars, directly upon her enthralled viewer; surely seeing the “Watcher at the Window” as certainly as she herself was seen. Drawing a sharp breath, hardly daring to release a further one, the Observer froze, captured by the absolute, undeniable alienness that infiltrated so completely the astral eyes of the Star Born of Europa, before remembering they were separated by the boundaries of time and space…

Solar winds shivering through silky strands slanting stealthily across the still, outlandish brilliance of acrid, acid seas, carrying on intergalactic winds the state song of the universe; sliding unseen through the timeless structure that was the Eye of the Needle at the end of the universe – an astronomical mirror of cosmic space under the unfathomable night sky of an exotic, stellar world.

Achingly lonely and compellingly beautiful, poised aloofly before the acidic seas of another world, she was growing faint now and hazy, even to the watchful scrutiny of her observer, drawn inexorably back into the misty timeline-dimensions from whence she had appeared, azure eyes glowing with the wisdom of the universe and the ancient heartache of a cosmic eternity. Otherworldly lunar light slid silently as a star wolf navigating the paths of the celestial moon tracks, boundless tears in a soundless pool of acid seas. Rainbowed riches that alternatively danced and shattered to the heart bleed of the universe. Universal star song. The dance music of the stars.

“If we could look into each other’s hearts, and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance and care.” – Marvin J Ashton

  2. Dear Wolfie, wow, how eloquently you took me to that other land, where I was transported into rainbows and ice.. Swept along in solar winds and my way lit by the shining moons and birthing stars… What a view the observer has if only they allow themselves to be drawn through the eye of the needle… Your thread pulled me ….. And your graphic creations were astoundingly beautiful.. I loved how you managed to get the planet look just like a tear in the last one amazingly done…

  4. I enjoyed that journey with you. Your illustrations are beautiful – as usual! I particularly like the first one, leading us into the tale.

    • Thank you Clowie! I had you on a very tight leash at that point lol just to make sure you didn’t get away before you’d finished your visit!! HoooOOOOOoooooWWWWWWwwwwwLLLLLLLLLL!!!! 😀

  5. Are you sure, you aren’t some long lost poet who has a few famous books out?! Your words are so eloquent!

    • I wish! lol Every once in a blue moon I am sufficiently inspired by my efforts to toss them out for the whole of blogging land to share in lol whether that is a blessing or a curse I leave to The Readers to Decide!

  6. wow. i just love the way you have described the whole thing. its so deep. i felt like im part of it. oh and the quote at the end is awesome!! keep writing great stuff wolfie – xoxo ME

    • Always good to feel that the reader can engage with the content on one level or another 🙂 No matter how much you may approve of your own efforts lol you can never be sure if others will share your enthusiasm. It’s great when they do! Thanks 🙂

  7. You took me away with fantastic story of adventure, intrigue, and mystery! It was had me locked in from the beginning!
    where have you been??? what have you been up to? love, Eddie

    • Yes…lol I do tend to lock the door and throw away the key lol when I’m hoping to secure a captive audience 😉 Rewarding to know you enjoyed it 😉
      I have been far and wide Eddie, to worlds beyond the stars, cities in the sky. ..In an effort lol to get to grips with the wonders of Windows 8.1. The journey has been turbulent and fraught with many hidden dangers! The path of life has been very demanding in certain respects and I have had to get things back on track before returning to W.P. Missed you! 🙂 x

  8. Hope seas are not too acidic for Wolfie, and other life. Ditto what Clowie said also – great reply there too!

    • Us extra terrestrials wolfie types have cast iron constitutions lol 😉 A little drop of acid in our lives is just a little drop of excitement in the cosmic ocean lol Clowie’s great! I think I might have seen her swimming in those acid seas too..but she’s a very fine Pyrenean Mountain Dog so only to be expected! You’d probably enjoy it too…extreme holidaying!! 🙂

  9. Wolfie, m’dear….
    I was happy to see your lovely icon over at my blog, and knowing how busy you keep yourself, wanted to drop by in my short time online to make sure I said howdy (Howdy!!…), and read your latest… I was pleasantly surprised to see this one; it’s more than good, just as a piece of fancy, and/or fantasy; as well, it’s a very strong, beautiful vision…. Combined with the new technique in your included artwork, which is excellent, it makes an outstanding post even better…. Many kudos….
    When I said I was surprised, I didn’t mean to imply I was surprised you can create that kind of post; that doesn’t surprise me in the slightest…. I only meant I was (pleasantly) surprised to find it on the one time I’ve been able to get by your site lately…. I’m lucky today, I guess…
    Sorry about the weather on your “Bank Holiday” (whatever that is…. I mean, I know it’s a holiday, but, what does it celebrate? Everything is free? One day of no interest charged?… I never could figure that out, and never asked anyone….or googled it, either…. any who….)… but, like you say, wolves don’t mind the weather much….
    BTW…. by ‘acid’ I hope you don’t mean lysergic acid (diethylamide), aka LSD? Having been there, done that, many, many seasons ago, I can attest to its relative risks…. Have a care if that is what you meant… if not, well, never mind an old man’s misconceived notions…
    Haben Sie eine guten tag, I’d write more auf Deutsch, but don’t feel like switching over the keyboard….
    Thanks for stopping by, milady…. Take care, & Blessed Be
    gigoid, the dubious

    • Greetings gigoid the dubious! What a wolfishly exciting delight to have your illustrious presence gracing my blog page. …The pleasure is all mine! Are Bank Holidays free lol apart from a day off work on full pay no! Surprisingly enough the banks are closed too! Basically it celebrates a day off work if you’re lucky 😉
      No…The acid seas were not visualised as THAT sort of acid lol but it’s a perfectly reasonable consideration given the circumstances 🙂 Be good Oh great to gigoid the dubious….Wolfie the hairy!!!

  10. Wünsche dir ein schönes wee-kend Liebe Grüße und Freundschaft.Gislinde

    • We certainly travel to strange and unexpected realms along the paths of the imagination! Hold on tight to your hat! Those solar winds are pretty wild at the best of times! 🙂
