Portents of Broken: XVI

Portents I-XVII predict events of BROKEN: Book Two


xvi. Council of Tsugen

And stoic say the gravest word
Of sands betraying royal plea
To coming Way await in turn

Untroubled squander days ahead
Let battle wander where it will
In guidance ponder Way’s return
As darkness yonder breaks the line.

Wontsa Vaharel of Jundohol
Rihu Fendil of Zejawehe
Kurrot Renvohol of Levahani
Sashik Tselinel of Ehedaril
