[With the Emphatic Aid of Stravinsky] – Warring Angels (a story)

Call it discord, dissonance or call it good music? This is a hint of disharmony and how much you involve the composer’s piece is up to you. But if you fast forward it to where I direct, you’ll get the emphatic point I was trying to go for. Listen to the clash of the angels…..

All you could hear from the sky was the clash of swords. All you could see was slashes of light as if they had thunder bolts or light sabers in their battle.

πŸ’€ Thou shalt not take what is mine!
πŸ‘» Thine?? Tis not, I say! If I cannot have it, then neither shall you!

No one knew why the angels were in conflict. The priests agreed it wasn’t the end times yet. They had prayed and cast runes just to be sure.

πŸ’€ 🎢🎢🎢🎢

The village wasn’t used to the angels fighting and they had no idea what to make of it, or what to do. They just knew it was a bad thing to happen.

πŸ’€ Fight I say! Take it if you can! If you’re strong enough.
πŸ‘» Never fear! It’s not strength I lack.

They tried to stay out of the way, but the angels moved so quickly, There just wasn’t a place to hide from them. So they hunkered down and waited for the storm to pass.

The villagers had no idea how long the feud would last though. And they were starting to realize that some basic needs were going to have to be addressed soon. Food, water, even a pee break would be nice, Well, more than nice as the battle wore on.

πŸ’€ How dare you?? It’s mine by right! By design.
πŸ‘» You speak as if it were by manifest. No such design exists!

What could they do to stop this conflict though? The priests tried appealing to the angels in prayer. They tried calling out to them and other angels in hope of aid. But nothing happened.

Did angels have some kind of code about when they could interupt or intrude on disputes? What were the grounds for such efforts?

πŸ’€ I know it in my wings!
πŸ‘» As I do!

No hope existed that the angels would tire or need those same breaks the villagers had either. So what would cause them to stop?

πŸ’€ 🎢🎢🎢

The fight took over the lives of everyone in the village. And there was nothing they could do.

πŸ’€ (shriek!!)
πŸ‘» Hazah!! If you have the right to it, why am I winning?

The battled carried on and on. Slowly the villagers who were less delighted by all that was religious, all that was angelic slunk away. And slowly those who were enraptured died waiting for calm to be restored.

The land grew desolate waiting for the angels to resolve their dispute. Even though it wasn’t the end times quite yet.
