Oruwyë

Oruwyë

In the days of old

the ë used to run in greater quantities

not only in the vessels of women and men

but also in all they touched and created

Oruwyë that lied somewhere beyond Iyë’s peaks

is another of the lost towns

that once thrived

and have now departed

Oruwyë the fair stood on mountains

at the feet of greater mountains still

and the only way to visit Oruwyë was

to travel by the ways of water

Stories tell that every building of the city

but also the walls and the roads

were built in a stone that absorbed sunlight

This stone faintly shined during the day

and it continued glowing in a warm yellow at night

Its light was strong enough to see

without dazzling the eyes of wanderers

Oruwyë was alive in many ways that are now unknown to us

some say it had been grown and not built from the stone

and its towers were not needed for defence

as no enemy of Falnë could ever come to Oruwyë

but they were used to gaze at the stars and the moons at night

Not all the travellers who sought Oruwyë could find it

Oruwyë made itself visible to a few

and the others might have searched every valley of the mountain without finding it

Only the pure of heart who let the sun shine through him

could eventually find the river that led to Oruwyë

and there a boat magically appeared sailing to him without sailors

and when he dared climbing on it

the boat conducted him to Oruwyë’s splendour

 

 

To come to Oruwyë, the city of the sun

you cannot hold on your fears and your hurts and your past and your life

you need to let go of everything but the desire to be truly yourself

At night in Oruwyë

each person sees a different sky vault

some catch the sight of several moons

while others can only see the stars

And during the day if you ask two persons to describe you the sun

each description will differ from the other

for no two persons see the same sun

And you will hear music too

but each tune you dance on will be different from that of the others

Oruwyë is one of the hearts of Falnë

Oruwyë is a place where many wish to go

but few truly visit

Oruwyë requires the ultimate sacrifice to let you find it

Oruwyë demands you let go of everyone and everything but yourself

Oruwyë is not the final destination where you are heading

but Oruwyë is on the path of your Dream

Oruwyë will let the ë grow stronger and stronger in you

and bridge the gap between your body and your soul

Oruwyë is a place of loneliness where people do not chat together

but Oruwyë will help you find togetherness in your heart

so that you are never lonely again

Nestled town
