Black winged glory
raven delirium
knocking loose the moon

Seasons push free
the growth
of timeless oak bursting forth

From a planted seed
dreaming madness takes hold
reaching towards the sky

Climb the mighty world tree
roots flowing with wandering wraiths
reflecting our ceaseless branches

Hang me from your powerful trunk
take me into inspiration
seeking our immortal light

Eternity licks the desert dry
curving hips of mother’s bones
catching every drop of blood

Ankle pierced and dangling
let me be carved for wisdom
ready to receive the waiting well

Peck open my eyes
leave me blind no more
the night unfolding in my arms
