The Very Verst of jwf

Penix Risenfall

down I dive

from the heavens

a dove of love

dodging angel tears

past harp-shaped ears

to be a circling gull around

pillowed bosom mounds of clouds

then stalking as a soaring hawk

across the meadow belly of earth

to'rd the ancient valley of birth

where on leather condor wings I glide above

wet lava flows from the vulcan cave

until the heat has drawn me down

and flame consumes me;

I die, consummate.


when you rise to go

my heart cries woe

mind wails no

my soul says whoa

and body signals grow

and lo, another penix rises

on the smoke.
