“The Old Ones Gather” Has Been Nominated for a Rhysling!

I’m honored to announce that my untitled zip rengay was recently nominated for the Rhysling award! I’ve included it below (minus the traditional formatting, which wouldn’t transfer to my site). Hope you enjoy reading it!

the Old Ones gather hopeful

such silence at the birthing pond

not a single ripple breaches the surface

wails from the Chosen One

not again not again not again

murmured chants how the water begins to churn

writhing to the surface

ten-thousand tentacles newborn mewls

ululation as ten-thousand more are born
