Poetry: Illumination

A poem by Alice Zimmerman
in response to Golden Mean,
the artwork of Jean Dahlgren

I am a phoenix rising from the pyre
Blazing my way from one life to the next
All of me burns away with a force indescribable
As a roaring, raging, illuminating rapier incinerates me to my center
Dissolving all that is old and no longer useful

And I rise...
And I raise...my self
Renewed, re-birthed, rediscovered
Only to recognize that all I ever had to do
Was remember
