About the Poem
Beginning and ending - people are sometimes so engrossed with the two that they forget what happens in the middle. This poem was written for my brother who died a short time ago.
The Temporal Heart
|by Andrew Carrie
The temporal heart beats out it's new arrival
My Genesis comes into being without consent
With no thoughts other than to exist
Leaving me to thoughts of my survival
And when nature concludes my life spent
She will lay me to rest for a time
Until a new purpose has been found for me
And like the Phoenix from the ashes, I will rise again.
