Burst Rhapsody

March 29, 2011

By: Magnolia

From inside the belly of the earth

And in-between the thorns

The salts and seas conjured up

One of the most beautiful, still and moving forms.

Between the bosoms of life and death

And underneath this fleshed pealed skin

There spawns and breathes a life form, imploding from within.

With wings that fear no measure, and beats that know no ground

In hope it dives and swims and flies and through the universes it’s found.

Surrendered and surrounded by the electricity of the invisible touch,

The bite of the lip, the grit of the teeth,

The wind that howls and the water that seeps,

Between the fractured earth and pores of decaying skin,

 Is where one cracks and discerns a polyphone buried deep within.
