To Ash

Burn it all to ash
this world of the past
that lives and breathes
no more than future fantasy

Ah, the many hues
of this pure golden dragon's breath
as it breathes new life into a form
(in and out, and out and in
one steady heartbeat
setting tempo, beat)
that seems no more
than ashes at a glance

yet lives just now
to tell these tales
of truth breathed in
eternity of form...
