Somewhere in the fire’s
Low, amber glow
There are worlds upon worlds,
Shining soft,
In far off unknowns.
The welcome heat
The blaze brings,
The crackling song
The wood sings –
In streaking embers lost
To entropy – slips as
My spirit churns
And begins to burn deep, beneath
Consuming my memories
Under the ocean’s sleep

The flame catches higher
Spread by winds
That crack my skin
The stars
That kindle the sky
Have all gone out.
My ground
Of disposition
The world is rewritten.
But all life is just a dream
To be a memory;
A secret fire burning
To infinity.

Does this fire
Purify my eyes?
Now aware of
A moment’s endeavor;
Unknown will be our treasure
Once we dare
To venture beyond
A mother’s leg to hide behind.
Channeled through to the other side
Far from the wildfire’s wake;
The smoldering charcoal remains.

A sudden sting
And the sight of this dream
Melts as wax
On a candle streams
Down in trickles.
A clouded pool forms
My swirling face.
And where I once
Had eyes, hold
Wicks of burning oil.

You don’t need ears to hear
Or eyes to see,
When all life is like a dream,
Lit by the light that brings
The same flame
That ignites dominance
Lights the way for love to find us;
Calling from the other side.
