Phoenix immortal

Mass of red and gold plumage
blood of supreme incessant immortality flows within
Only I alone can reign stronger
a fortiori
than the army of any man or beast
Symbolic of Christ, ressurection, afterlife
In death redeemed
consumed by fire
only to be born again of ashes
I will rise up again!

Injured from mortals wars
I simply ameliorate and regenerate
I am fire and divinty
Continually watching the irresolute
ever changing, dynamic world around me
In despair I scrutinize and contemplate
as all things moral
are taken from me periodically and adinfinitum
lost ever and again

Armys of mortals have chased my blood for an age
in want of my immortality
Whilst they wrangle with continual want
and I would content for less
I have met no immortal contender
my glorification to you either unobtainable
or a terrible curse
As a deity I serve this planet in all my supremacy
for I will foresee you all

Artist's Description

Authors note

This piece was originally written as a two part collaborative effort with poet Kathleen C. Mannon, otherwise known by pen name kkatie55 . The prompt we were given to write to for contest was Mortal vs. Immortal in September of 2007, a month after I first started writing I believe. To begin with we both took our ideas and wrote individually then bringing our ideas together and changing slightly to fit from there… I tried to write so this would stand alone too, and have only just decided to bring it out to share for opinion. To see the write with the omitted verses written by the other poet, please feel free to go view at this link where each poet has initialled over their respective stanzas/verses.

Thankyou for your trouble in reading this explanation, but I do not wish to discredit its original intention nor take anything away from the other poet by placing this half here. I hope you shall be excited about reading it in full…
