Sanctuary

“The earth had swallowed them a long time ago. Their cities now prosper inside the warm body of soil, nourished by their mother’s veins. As men dig their way deeper into darkness, they leave behind a trail of withering ruins, telling the tale of a restless society. The stubborn ones who refused to follow the fading pulse of their dying mother will stay behind and find peace in observing the smoking chimneys, a sign of life deep inside. But with the passage of time, nature and malevolent gods will reclaim even the last bit of their territory.“
