Vortex Eyes

Vortex Eyes
by Robert Paul Gass (aka Imagines Vinco aka Ultionem Vinco)
The shepherd leads his flock to faith of might
As staff of crooked edge of Tem awaits
And underworld the boat to pass with sight
Of tortured laying seeds of bitter fates.
The standard held aloft in battle's dirge
To take the form of emblem sharp in mind
And soldiers disembowled cry the purge
Of life so close to vine with skin entwined.
The changing forms to grow and die with age
As Ra in boat above Sebek's domain
And Shu to storm beneath the rippled page
Embracing mate with starry moisture's rain.
The eyes of death to stare at whorl in sky
And emblem forgets crimson threads that cry.
