A Rare Myth Indeed

Laughter exploded like fireworks

and a celebration of renewal was underway

faces were aglow and agog with child-like wonder at the display.

Your name sizzles on the barbecue

and there’s food for all tastes,

no one will go hungry at this audio/visual feast.

Moving once more in nonchalant beauty

like a cat licking smiling lips

still sticky with residual cream,

there’s a barbecue queue forming

of those who want to stroke you and hear you purr.

Bright sparks land on onlookers,

tingling skin and warming flesh

and some reach out to catch

the burning effusiveness of your renaissance.

A resplendent Φοίνιξ has emerged from the ashes.
