The Lightsaber

By KT Heacock

Poetry / Scifi

The Lightsaber

The Lightsaber

The press of a button.

A glow of blue light.

The handle is worn

Down by years of tight grips.

The hilt fits to a a palm

Like a good pair of boots

Molded over the years.

Each scratch and dent

Holds a story of victory

Or a story of defeat.

The sleek lines.

The gentle curve.

The soft hum

Of power.

The way the blue light

Glints off the metal.

It is elegance

In tool form.

A weapon

From a time

Gone from memory.

The bright blue blade

Was a source of peace

The smooth indents

Of a hand

That stood for Justice.

It was known

Throughout the galaxy,

But no longer.

Chris Rolfe: BOY!!! I sure love what Aer-Ki Jyr did with this series. IMHO he captured the essence of what stargate is all about. Thru out the Stargate stories Aer-Ki wrote Stevens and John Shepard some of the main characters in his stories are pursued by a corrupt I.O.A.. All the while Stevens is changing in...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

wildweeder: I found the story "The Last Starry Night" to be exciting and entertaining (and a little bit scary in parts). I loved the way the young people explained things to each other.The growth and development of the young Warriors that Johnny adopted was fun. Listening to Grandma talk to them in "wisdom s...
