rebirth

distant drums beat sweet
echoes of woods never walked
eyes to strain the night

stories writ to skin
dreams to recall our longing
whisperings we hushed

a heart coos softly
of happiness retreating
the dove cannot change

a dawn breaks clearly
the ghost of feathered knowing
destiny becomes

ancient smoke rises
wonders defy our vision
 awaken new eyes

the day will become
when fire will burn too deeply
our spirits to mourn

. . .
