Outback II: Sunset

June 10, 2009

Like a phoenix
the sun
shares her dying glory
with parched sand,
fire kissed by fire,
her amber rays spark
off the embers of orange earth,
and molten clay soil shines
momentarily golden into space
and holds the memory of light
lest the sunbird forget
how to rise again
from midnight ashes.

  1. I LOVE this one! ‘lest the sunbird forget / how to rise again / from midnight ashes.’
    glorious. It reminded me heaps of a couple of the poems I read for my humanities essay.


    • Wow thanks 🙂 I have a slight obsession/fascination with phoenixes 😛
