eagle risen

a torrent of blood
swelling into the valley
at the far end
the girl with the halo
and sunken eyes

with an ostrich feather
she dips into
the foamy typhoon
making a furze
of tiny coloured beads

in her belly
the seed
is sprouting
a new arrival
in the wigwam

he lifts the dragon wing
of black hair
and whispers there
the combination key
to every chamber of his heart
