Obsidian

by Ex Libris Regina
volcano

Volcanic dense, though lava cooled, 
Carved Phoenix rising to the sky, 
To penetrate a pale, blue pool, 
A morning call to Night's demise.

Shine forth, ye peaked, ebony jewel, 
Reveal within the sun's first rays, 
A standing power's highest view 
And witness to a million days. 

An ancient tower, black on blue, 
Erected by a thousand slaves 
From distant quarries forth they drew– 
Obsidian–its glassy face—the vanity of gods embrue. 

As chaos, ever creeping darkness looms, 
Be light and wise among the ruins.
