AN: Salvaged Scraps are things I found laying around that I don't remember writing, all are untitled.

The man said to the old tree, "Give me the wisdom of your ages, and I will tend you all your life."

So the tree gave him the fruits of time and soon died.

In his newfound wisdom the man looked at life and the world, and felt despair. Wearing his glorious robes which he made decorated with the old tree's imagery in silvery threads and made from silk, he travelled the land until he became an old man, and added to his store of wisdom some fifty years more.

When age came early for him and he felt the time for rest, he was overwhelmed with a strong emptiness, a dull blackness as that of the bottom of a cup.

The conscious shape reality.

Hey I really liked this. Piece out of time. It leaves images for the reader's imagination to work with. I think the fact that the end if kind of out there might confuse people but let them be confused. It's a real thinker piece and it's fun for me to read.

more scraps please
I can't tell you exactly why I like this except maybe it reminds me of some fantasy stories I used to read in my younger days.
