Congregation of Flakes
by Linda Nelson
Blowing on the wind
Adrift falling in the sky
Floating endlessly to the ground
An upsweeping wind
Captures the drifting flake
Pulling it up higher
To fall once again
Through tree tops
Past bird nests empty for the winter
Bumping against dried brown leaves
With arches and points
One last gust of wind
Blows the floating, drifting flake
Against a boulder covered
In the fellow congregation of flakes
At the moment, I’m halfway through reading Game of Thrones: A Feast of Crows – Book 4 by GRRM. This series is so complex; it rattles my brain as to how George Martin was able to put together such a fabulous story.
I do have theories of who is whom and what they mean to the story. The following video does have spoilers. So if you haven’t read the books up to book 5, then expect spoilers. Almost everyone I know likes to jump ahead of an excellent book to see if they can get a glimpse as to which way the story is going to take them. Will this character do this or will their wishes be fulfilled?
Game of Thrones is not only a fantasy; it’s riddled with mysteries. Like who is Jon Snow’s parents? Is Arya ever going to find peace? What is the importance of Bran and the three eyed crow? Then, there is Tyrion. He is one of my favorite characters of the book. When I stumbled across this video on YouTube, I had to agree with the narrator on this theory.
Warning: Spoilers for those who haven’t read the books or watched the HBO Series- These spoilers will take you all the way to book 5 – so that you know.
This is the video about Jon Snow – Spoilers too!
What do you believe, a Lannister or Targaryen?
I don’t think Cersei and Jamie could be Targaryen. They, especially Cersei are want to be’s chasing a dream. Neither have beliefs in Dragons or understand any of the magic that exists beyond the wall. Only Tyrion believes in magic and seeks more answers by reading book after book after book.
