Heart of Obsidian

Hard green flint
sacrificial knives
emerald blood ran deep

Ancient Egyptian polished
properties preserved
black and white magic

Drought and famine abound
dual power talented
cut and knit together again

Contrasting functions
volcanic rock envy
your twin jealous heart

    Jemfyr…………One hopes that his heart does not turn to a cold black rock, formed by fire, but cooled by time……Alas, stranger things have happened…..I love this poem.

    I am seeing two hearts indeed. Black and white with a bit of jealousy. Lovely piece.

    Simple, elegant, makes me feel scared yet reflective.
