Ascends out of the ashes of insistent self
consumed in the blaze of matter,
the bird of poetry rises
reborn out of the flames of ego.
with the duality of human nature,
with the yin
and the yang of creation,
the poet's familiar--
out of the ashes of insistent self.
--all born from self-knowledge--
across the firmament of imagination.
