The Psalmist

“Be still. Will you please pause for a sec and care to listen to this story?” says The Psalmist.

If you could just hear his voice now, you may feel cozy and eager to listen carefully. 'Cause that’s how he says it all, with clear, confident, powerful, and warm exhortation. A voice as big as a giant but as soft as a singing maya. As deep as the ocean but as high as the heavenly bodies. It makes a class in an abrupt silence. It’s clear that it makes Math as easy as it was. But most of all, that voice is like music. Every phrase is harmonious to the ear.

The soft crisps and crackles of that campfire in the midst of a forest can be heard in the background.

“I have these songs I composed for your ears and may it draw you in. Care to listen, dear?” The Psalmist took his old guitar and with a soft pluck at the sixth string, that lower E note, resounded an ominous, sorrowful, but a bit comfortable, and curious mellow tone.

Then he said, “This is an old one, but may it tickle your mind and may you have fun as much as I did when composing this...”

He, then, plucked...

I wish you can just hear it now, a very warm and relaxing melody, but with deep feels and such sorrows abide.

The melody continues... as he sings...

“This is the nascence of their history
Plunge to the page
You’re in her epiphany

A songbook translates reverberation
Entering the dawn of existence
Cessation in its inception

The protagonist’s juncture
Rests upon the ears that heeds
Expectant to the spectator

The incipient is liftin’ now
The proverbial plot’s liftin’ now
The origin is liftin’ now
The opening is liftin’ now...”

“Those were the days...”

summerstone: Seriously this is one of the best books I've ever read. The plot is intriguing, I love the narrative style. Its very descriptive and unique, with minimal cliches. It makes for a great read and the sequels are amazing. Totally worth reading. ^^ That's me trying to be professional. But in all hones...

John Reed: Seadrias masterfully captures the impressiveness and complex scope that a science fiction novel should provide while carefully crafting an entire universe that will leave a reader in awe from start to finish. The only flaw I could find is that I wish I could have read more. This book is certainly...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real. Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...

Schaelz: I was intrigued from the second I started reading, and it kept my interest the whole way through. Chelsea has a way with words that will enchant you until the very end. She is very poetic with the way she mixes genres and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The main character is also very relat...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

Alice Liu: Whoa! I've been wondering how would the Maurauders react to Harry's life and here we go! YOU ARE THE BEST! All the characters are consistent with their personalities shown in the book! I love how you compare Lily with Molly and it's definitely true for her being a mother! I wish Peter comes have ...

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

Usagi Kita: This story is emotional from beginning to end. You get to watch the characters struggle and grow, maturing in different ways so that they come to be the people they are meant to be. Inea is insanely adorable, and his antics made me laugh more than once, and Kaedon is perfect for him in so many wa...
