Terence G. Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)


Phoenix Nimbus Frankincense Funeral Pyre


phoenix this is your nimbus sweet scented
frankincense funeral pyre come embrace
again sacrificial flames nimbuses seven rays
impale your helios yellow eyes sun burns...

time spins empires rise fall metamorphosis
embraces consecrated body flame consumed
resurrection arising yellow gold scales shed
rose coloured talons stretch forth bite new lives...

into embodied flesh living in other times
other dimensions times into newborn births...
