Leaving…Flying Away

Love for the Beloved

love

overflowing

from heart to mind

mind to fingers

fingers swirling

in space and time

kindling the fire of love

for the Beloved

in the hearts of the

Lovers

the water of compassion

holding back

the consuming

flames

War of the Elements

water judgement
warring elements
Fools lost as always
in the between
such great art
made to remind us
of the worst time
for us mortal few
from a water birth
into the crucible we go
to the
baptism by fire
from above and below
the fire burns hottest
in the heart
our mind and body
consumed in fire
to ashes
they will go
we barely have a chance
to walk the razor’s edge
waiting for the phoenix
to take flight
so before that day
create all you can
and perhaps the
phoenix will
find rest
at last
