A Poem from my unpublished Anthology "An Eternal Golden Flame"
Shot ablaze like a brief lit borrowed sun

To be reborn within eternal death

Rejoice for when the burning day is done

The young phoenix takes her first precious breath

Now freed from the womb of feather and flame

Unfolding wings of a great golden hue

Ascending into the ether; her name

It lights the torch that makes the world anew

Let us celebrate the gift of her birth

But when at last her soul smoulders to smoke

Lament not her returning to the earth

For what remains beyond remains is Hope
