Alchemy

(My first drabble in this forum. Eeek!)

Title: Alchemy
Author: Branwyn
Characters/Pairing: Feanor
Rating: G
Disclaimer: MiddleEarth belongs to the Tolkien Estate. I am just a tourist in a tacky hat.
Summary: Feanor and basic chemistry. Also, a play on his name--"spirit of fire." Written for Altariel's birthday request at HASA.

before there was glass,
there was sand--
flecks of stone, white and salty,
scoured and sifted by the waves

before there was glass,
there was seaweed--
deep-drowned grasses, sleek green hair,
swaying and curling in the tide

before there was glass,
there were seashells--
cups of bone, empty houses,
holding the distant echo of Eldamar

before there was glass,
there was fire--
kelp rendered to ashes and light,
shells burned to lime, sand to glowing slag

melding the three,
the craftsman spoke soft words,
burning the dross, smoothing the surface,
as he bound the spirit of fire in the Stone
