Miao Shan

Lady phoenix, Miao Shan,
arms aflame in the temple,
body burning as your spirit.
Death drawn out, accepted,
folded into your heart
in origami flowers you
planted in hell, watered with
your tears and grew up again,
embers rushed back to life
seeking peace,
finding suffering
and still seeking.
