HAIKU: FIREBIRD

Out of ash, you’ll rise—
a feathery dawn come to
set the world ablaze.

Creature of the sun,
stretch your wings and soar again.
You were made for this.

Fire lights your hair and
your eyes sparkle sapphire—
terrible beauty.

Sing your siren song,
Firebird, for you will never
know clutches nor cage.

The secret behind
a soul that cannot be killed
is your destruction.

Sharpen your talons.
Pick gems from the hearts of men
with an easy beak.

Birds of prey must feed,
and the most tender of breasts
is oft the sweetest.

Yes, plumed Lazarus,
move your wings with graceful pride.
You were made for this.
