Broken Lives Rising; Rebirth Phoenix Ashes - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)
sailors this is the siren rock
upon which you shall break
your sleek ships this teeth sharp
rocky shore upon which broken
you shall slip loose souls drown...
moths this is no ghost white lunar sphere
entrapment false moon warm welcoming
candle flame is wick quick sand time is falling...
entrapment false moon candle flame quick sand
will in a gossamer puff moment snatch life brand
puff out gift life in delusion an instant hot burning...
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...
