Thunderbird on Top of the Christmas Tree - MJA 1982

Here is the whole poem for you: Tree of Life "I appeared in the form of an eagle on the Tree of Knowledge that I might teach them and awaken them out of the depth of the sleep of forgetfulness," "Breathless beauty - electric blue thunderbird phoenix eagle on the Tree of Life. Branches laden with fruit of whirling jewels, Glowing hearth tree Rising vapors of spirit and rainbow haloes. Gilded ancient alphabets adorn your limbs There are worlds within you and great applause." The first lines are a quotation from the Nag Hammadi Codices - Apocryphon of John pg. 11. (I realize now that the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge are two very different trees.)
