Approaching


APPROACHING

Marching over the horizon,
Like an army bearing down,
A battalion of raindrops
Coming to soak the town.

PHOENIX
(An Acrostic)

Pyrotechnic aviator, strange immortal bird!
Heat was meant to vanquish you! Maybe you hadn't heard!
Once your mortal days are ending, then you build a nest;
Every part of it is burning, singeing the feathers on your breast.
Now you're rising from your demise to live a thousand years!
Immortality through destruction! That's your secret, it appears!
X-ellent and mythic creature! I would revive like you
Over and over from the fire, always beautiful and new!
