Leaves shudder away as dark figures pass through the woods along a carved path. The figures show no sign of reflection on their faces as they move together. The only light coming forth under the canopy is emanated in occasional beams from luminescent creatures sulking within the tree line. The figures do not notice the lights. Their nearly endless pilgrimage stops in a clearing of woods; the forms file into the clearing, where a massive silver structure cuts upward out of the ground and arcs off to the south, out of sight.

Outside the perimeter of the clearing, beams of light are smoothly projected out of the shy creatures as they move along the branches. The warnings flash back and forth wildly, cascading from tree to face to floor, like searchlights.
One figure approaching the clearing is struck in the eyes with the light as he walks. He is jolted still, and his face changes. Moments pass, and he -now full awake- bolts away from the rest.

After clearing through the last thickets of brush, he reaches the edge of the forest. The sunrise feels rejuvenating for only a moment as a new world wakes up. He begins to again feel the crushing drain of the hovering sun. An intuitive turn leads him down the dried and cracked ground that was once a riverbed, where his horse is patiently waiting for his return.
