Death of the Neanderthal

Eons ago,
a windswept beach,
three strangers, enemies,
watched, in awe and dread,
as darkness fell at noon.

Beseeched restless spirits,
battle-lost, for light.

When light returned,
sliding across veined pebbles,
they linked arms and vowed a peace.
Sincere enough. 

Yet peace conceived in fear
can never last.
