Eyes in the night
Stalking my forest
Casually littered
Soft brush of mind on mind.

Prowler from a strange tribe
Testing the boundaries
Of my godless circle.

Light probing
Fire licking
Scenting the air
Smoking me out
Netting me.

A star blazing..
Your star.

Down the lightning strikes
Down the fire flashes
Down the Imbas falls
Fire in the head.

Down the fences
Turned to cinders.
Down the forest
Burnt tinder.
Down the castles
Carefully crafted.
Down all defences
Oh so easy.

Destroying a world
You birthed a new one.

And here I stand
Slightly singed
Carrying your torch.

I like how your poem brought out many feelings in me, and how synchronicity can act as a blessing and affirmation. Thank you for sharing!
