Altered in Ash

Mount St. Helens Spirit Lake

Mount St. Helens Spirit Lake

A Rondeau Redoublé

~~~

Altered in ash, our scriptures of doom
toasted in flames, those tales of gore.
Thread fresh syllables upon this loom
commence the spin of re-visioned lore.

Disarm economy’s bottomline war.
Diplomacy won, let generosity resume.
Outdated campaigns, tired old corps
altered in ash, our scriptures of doom.

Clear the shelves, empty the store
this heart requires new space to bloom.
Fire burned down, destroyed the sore
toasted in flames, those tales of gore.

Opened to joy, freed Spirit soars
raining revolution in vision’s womb.
Hum new patterns our attentions implore
thread fresh syllables upon this loom

Raise the ancients with articulate roar,
weave new rhythms and colorful plume.
Trust new threads to sun light’s lure,
commence the spin of re-visioned lore.

Witness a story form and pour
thoughtful parades in verdant costume
embodying desires from heart’s full drawer.
Be gone today, those scriptures of doom
altered in ash.

      Thank you Elaine. I can see them too – moving fluidly, wearing colors and textures like I saw in the costumes of Julianna Margulies, Joan Allen and Anjelica Huston – when they were starring in ‘The Mists of Avalon’.
