The Red Queen's Dream
Poem for Day 072 – 20141204

She sits on her throne
flanked by lions with gold manes.
Element of fire
harboring the caress of water.
Mother of the flame,
she moves forward with desire.
All things her passion,
seeking the whole of satisfaction.

Her hand holds the rod
ready to bloom to life.
She pursues the end
and sustains the vision.
Birthing the Phoenix
evoking cycles of regeneration.
Flowers face toward sun
seeking Apollo's return.

Beware the dark wrath,
the blasting attack of fire.
With the hot temper,
revengeful fury finds its mark.
Never forgetting,
help or harm submitted.
She will follow you
to help or punish is your reward.

She sits on her throne,
black cat at her feet.
Flame in its eyes,
white mark the throat.
The dream of water
mixed with the fire
will begin this dawn
and live on ever more.
