2020-08-24 – Rise to Shine

chalky, ruffled plumes
encase her temple
in ruins,

but we’ve all heard the tales
of flightful flash from
heaps of ash,

and up she flares without
so much as the bat of
a flaming


sheds a sideways glance,
forward too bright to waste
any of dawn’s glow
fallin’ back.

Fiery Riser

..fanning wildfires within heart’s stretching chest.
