Magda Cordell


An apparition


Emerging

Lucent and haloed


Buds erupting

weeping from a scaffold


Divine arrangement

Cruciform arms extending

framing, forming

separating, supporting


Soft swollen tears

droop in crimson

Gold, citrus

and solar smears

stain and sanctify


Foaming circulation

embalmed embryo

bleeds of life

Creation
