Philosopher’s Stone~by Paul Lenzi


 

 

Philosopher’s Stone

phil

“The Philosopher’s Stone” by Alexandra Eldridge

iron to gold

profane crucible

blessed with a waive

of ritual hands

incantations escape

words ex-nihilo

drift with mysterious

meter from lips

cowled and bearded

a magus in thrall

elemental elixirs

bequeath immortality

wise with the broth

brewed of secrets

one stone magnum opus

impressed by the ages

immersed in distilled

aqua vitae the rosy cross

waters that washed

the ambitions of ancients
