Wings - Poem by Farshid Rezaee

The haughty eagle soaring,
To heaven’s acme of pride,
Where Olympians abide,
And Zeus’s voice roaring

Wings stretched to eternity,
Eyes drunk with flames of lust,
Time withers as moments rust,
Claws sharpened with enmity.

Envy in veins wildly floats,
At Medusa’s glance the heart petrified,
All beneath eyes thus mortified,
Seed of greed in mind bloats,

Piercing clouds, an arrow flies,
Swift Hermes, Cupid’s dart
Arrow’s fang stings the heart
The dying eagle’s groaning cries…
