Entry - MAG Poetry Prize 2009

Reine de Ciel

by Simone Rogers

This orange disc

Leaking over  

My scorched plain
 
Burns kohl rimmed retina

Pitch battlements steeply blue


The shadows are cool
             
Eagle magnificent on

Bejewelled encrusted fingers  



I murmur  

Latina

Matina

Matrimona

Crusader golden warrior God  

Flow to  


Apollo

Apollina

Diana  

Gods all my Gods  



To worship

To wonder

Gloria

Exaltations

Delineations

Along  

The Circle
 
Of my soul

Rotates to the ebb

The spin of blood and gristle  

And at the core

White light

Witch nourishes.
 
I know her  

Queen of Heaven

Enthroned

In Sienna, Cobalt and Stars.
