THE GHOST of BALADIN FLIES


The Ghost of Baladin Flies …

 ✙ ✙ ✙ ✙ ✙ ✙ ✙ 

… they say the ghost of Bal-a-din flies over the moors of Mull since the days they laid his bones to rest … that he has appeared in the jagged rush of a snow leopard in the wasteland of Siberia’s northern hills … they have heard his cry in the moan of an ice whale who remembered his silhouette against the flickering northern lights … and a white bear, they say, was heard to sing the tune to Baladin’s Song by two starving hunters in the west of Alaska …  yet the strangest tale concerns a blue marlin that a fisherman heard laugh when breaking his line and escaping off the Florida keys … and at least once he brought terror to sailors who say they saw his smile in a wandering albatross … but I do know the truth of DemBala, the wolf master …. He died a happy old man in his sleep after supper with three women by his bed side and a warm log fire crackling in the hearth … He had made his peace with the Almighty a long time previous and now travels the universe at the Master’s bidding often stopping to gaze at the cerulean and the viridian of the earth so far below … awaiting the meek’s inheritance …

 … and the meek shall inherit the earth …

… ‘a white tailed sea-eagle flies over the Island of Mull’ …

… He had made his peace with the Almighty a long time previous and now travels the universe at the Master’s bidding often stopping to gaze at the cerulean and the viridian of the earth so far below …
