[Phantom of the Opera Venetian Masquerade Mask from google dot com]

FOUR MOVEMENTS _ MASK
I
The mask shows
It tells
There's never the lie

II
A sinister power dared to show
The mask of soul allowed to agent

For too small is ego
And too large is spirit

Yet mask of go-between
Perfect in its application


III
Spa day, we peel and daub
In doll house feminine
Transforming stress to dust of dust


IV
Bigger than the phoenix
The fire risen in depths
Of passion
The phantom and the dance of life
Plays on

  1. Wow! These 4 movements PLUS the music is a generous gift.
    "For too small is ego
    And too large is spirit" and "Bigger than the phoenix"
    what a place for transformation the mask provides!
    These images dance for me.

  9. In life we think our eyes see it all but so much is masked, hidden from us. How well you show this in your poem Gillena.
