Phoenix II--collaboration starsevenO

by butterflyzrfree

space filled with a glass, use of the whirlwind
full of empty. It seems to burst.
thank the gods deeply,
firefly's sing weak---
such grows a drop of water.
That part of the cyclone,
which lights up happiness.

sweet whirlwind life,
sea roaring, roaring, full,
shaking the life of the universe
the cyclones.

Fragrance of flowers, moonlight,
and I hear my own sweet heart.

My gods are your gods,
and it is the roaring,
shaking life of the universe.
Full, which seems to burst,
thus fireflys sing weak---
I have become a sweet song,
flying through doors of rocks,
Trees and flowers at the gate.

I want to knock on the doors
all over the universe,
life tells of beauty
yet universe,
can make you dead gray,
so when suddenly the Phoenix
holds sweet life -----
from this abyss.
Say thank you and--grab it!

I heard in my heart such despair, yet
shining tears of joy on the harp,
light as butterflies dance,
singing drops of water,
the Phoenix.

I love this, It is beautifully worded and full of imagery. I love the closing stanza.

"flying through door of rocks reminds me of something I heard once". Jesus was able to walk through a door after he died. But it wasn't because he was spacey and lighter than the door. It was because he was more dense than the door and walked through it like wading through water. I don't know if you will think it relates to your door of rock or not. A very thought provoking poem.
