Wispy. Black .
The swirling disembodied string
Drifted into sublime nothingness.
Leaving in its wake
An exhausted wick
In a charred earthen lamp.
Returning dust to dust
But from beyond the Styx
Will there rise the Phoenix ?
All aflame with energies anew
To rebuild a life he had bid adieu ?
If he does , then why did he leave ?
If he left , then why retrieve?
