Stone Alexander

By Rebs

Burning smoke of fragrant sage
Evergreen turning into gray ash
Turn steadily the parchment page






In his love-locked ivory cage
Exhale my screams into the air
Burning smoke of fragrant sage






Savage in a beautiful and shared rage
Fire consumes my depths in bloom
Turn steadily the parchment page






His statuesque face a challenge to gage
Pallor of ancient beauty living again
Burning smoke of fragrant sage






Writhing against him as the hours age
In blessed aromatic passage to the dawn
Turn steadily the parchment page






Lunar rays abundantly bathe our stage
Sighing a melody to the wind
Burning smoke of fragrant sage
Turn steadily the parchment page

    Reminiscent of "The Smell of Verbena" the details of which escape me now Rebs. So good to see you executing my favorite form (the villanelle). Well done and cheers my friend! - Dan

    This one opens up the floodgates of my imagination to run rampant . Evergreen sage , maybe gage . Alexander the great or a demon possessed dictator in the Omega 2 movie . Oh I'm probably over reaching the real simple truth .
