My Poem – Meditate On A Fiery Death

As you sleep you dream,
A tree so withered you imagine,
Set against the blazing sun,
A desert devoid of living beings.

From the barren ground beneath,
From  the core of earth far deep,
A burning fury rises fast,
Your roots and trunk it engulfs.

You die a fiery death.
The flames from the molten depth.
Reducing everything into ashes.
Until there is nothing left.

This is not yet the ending.
For there is a new beginning.
From above, Heaven sheds tears,
Cream of regeneration it is falling.

The  gentle cascade of heavenly rain
Restores  this land to a luxuriant green,
Bringing   a new life to this earthly plane
Your rebirth begins as  a new sapling

All your previous sins and damnation
From the ashes, you are now redeemed
You grow into  a tall and sturdy tree
Be blessed with a rejuvenated body!
