Merlin’s Story

AN: This is just a beginning to a story line I’m working on.  Trying to get some feedback to see if I’m going in the right direction with this or not.  I could sure use some input from some talented writers out there.  I’ve never tried this type of writing before. This is a beginning from an old free verse poem I wrote once http://fsvpoetry.blogspot.com/2011/05/merlins-story.html   I thought I might try and develop this into a novel. 

 

Prologue

Laying deep within a dark, dank cavern...
               chained...
                                          denied freedom...
is a very ancient beast, his eyes,
                                                 all seeing,
peer out into the darkness,
                             gathering visions...
     the birth of a gifted child,
the savior of all humanity...
                                         or the destroyer...
depending upon the path he follows.
Two sisters of magical heritage...
                                     opposites,
vie for control in the guidance of this child.
                         Soon,
the child has grown enough
              to begin upon his path
                                 and choose his destiny.
The ancient beast watches quietly within his prison
waiting until this boy makes clear his chosen path...
