BURNING ELEGANCE

shimmering goddess purest silver whispering to my eyes
beckoning light laughing through the flaring wilderness
grey waves distorting vision fade across the skies
floats above the pyramid of my desires

orange and red lap thirstily, hungrily, greedily for the source
of my visions
pyramid of my desires suspended above our mother crying. . .
crying her existence, grasping for continuity

strength lapsing she folds upon herself still questing
limbs angling, scrabbling for the heights
she slowly rests and loses her existence

A silver eye twinkles through the darkness, no longer obscured. . .
Acknowledgement of birth and passing
A solemn procession of fireflies rest upon the ground,
asleep forevermore.
