'Evaporating' by Cherry Orchards

The lands devoured in rhythmic sound

As earth's heart beat shakes the ground

And droplets like comets, the flames burst forth

A crest of souls swept up in plight

Twisting and writhing in forces of light

No time to dwindle or dwell

Into warmth I penetrate as my body fell

Evaporating into spirit

Ascending like a jewel in the sky

A treasure, its secrets the clouds conceal now.


James
