Polar Light of Sombre Sun

Polar Light of Sombre Sun

⦿

In polar light of sombre sun

Are flickering shadows seen

As Words emerge

Whose dancing light

Is greater than the place they’ve been

⦿

A Lion’s mouth sounds forth it’s call

As red is joined to white

And in that voice

Is freedom’s choice

Made total in the night

⦿

Does lighted wood create its life

Or simply give it song?

Within the form

No longer born

Uniquely kissed, no right or wrong

⦿

A mighty breath, drawn in and held

assumes the power of good

And hands its life

Beyond all strife

To She whose body is the wood
