THE DIVINE TWINS

By the starry light above,
behold the soaring azure dove.
By the darkness far beneath,
the scarlet serpent bears his teeth.

As each do turn to spy the other
brother, enemy, and lover
And each to arms now leap and soar
To meet on earth in bitter war.

By talon, fang, and shed of blood
By burning fire and raging flood
Their battle turns to deep desire
Two flames into a single fire.

As Holy Lust meets Sacred Love
So joins the serpent to the dove.
And in their place as two form one
The Peacock Angel thus is born.
