The Last Ember

Not the first burn-it-all-down 
An aftermath of broken hearts
In the relief of at last it's done
Or undone yet again in the fever pitch

Of how the cycle returns to itself
with a hundred matches lite under
The vulnerable exposure of choices
Incongruent with each other, writhing

Looking for that patch of green
Under the April showers to bath in
From the smoke and faltering
Cinders laid to waste by the 

Try to hard yet again and again
By the lashing beseech of lost 
Yesterdays yearning to free the heart
Outcasted on a lonely patch of Spring

Waiting for a renewal
Waiting to be the seed planted
Waiting for the rain to drown
The last ember

Resurrection of Spring… the yearning.

day 20… What do you resurrect?

Ireland in Spring

Pagan roots have settled deep

What is fertile awakens to Ishtar’s call

Meadow dances and moonlit coupling

Seeds planted for the summer’s birthing


Resurrection of what seems dead and bare

Only to rise again from the sleep of winter

That quiet peace of rest and darkness

Pushing out and up to the chatter of life’s call


Celebration heats the Spring winds

Cycles and passages of starlight dreams

Under the moon of seasons changing

Oh how the Sun calls to life’s greening


In bones and cells the hail must be herald

Awakening elements within and all around

Stirring up this seasons quaking return

The fever must be fed for this yearning.
