Spiritual

There flies the unyielding wind
Over the lanterns of fire
They whisk and curl and ring for peace–
Zip and cry in the night

There lies the old and new
Shifting in the flames
Ashes dancing in the sky
To greet the wavering stars

I am the one that lives in the breadth
Of all changes
I am a chrysalis
Of citrine and amber

My roots know the deepest fathoms of the earth
My canopy knows the tallest heights.
