Beyond the Flesh

Emotions are at war within the heart
but its steady beat
mesmerizes the opposition

and extremes are lulled
into a quiet balance
in this creative container

like an alchemical vas
where particles heat and combine
blending into new and unknown forms

then cool
as the fire burns down for the night
awakening the spirit deep within

the changes are incredible
as the blood - transformed
flows to every nerve and cell

the power of emotion is unending
the love created in the heart, a gift
from realms beyond the flesh

where to be
means everything
