Firebird

firebird s

The ring rises in flames, shadows of the sun opening a path to beginning. Rocks expand and explode into ashes, illuminating the sharp contrast of future within the past. Eyes focus with renewed clarity on the intersection of time.

The cosmic altar calls. The egg of myrrh responds, acting as catalyst to wings embracing the sky.

Reflected as moon
fertility unfolding
forever returned

I’ve finally taken Colleen’s haibun challenge, using both her prompt words and those of the Secret Keeper this week.

Paired with another piece of mythological junk mail art.

    Mythology and fluid time–I love it!
    This is so magical and mystical.
    Isn’t it funny–and fun–how we can take the same words and come up with such different types of poems?

    Something about the colors of the collage, meshed with your words–so atmospheric. I can see the “egg of myrrh” as something golden, and “fertility unfolding” is such a strong, goddess-like image.

    Extra like this one. The arm gestures are perfect and words and art together really make me feel I’m reading and looking at a tomb or monument , maybe on another world.
