Again to find a fire within

SeekwareBlendModeNone

Within the fire burning

the log ignited and

flames leaping, pushing driving

the air from where

it sits quietly waiting.

I am burning, the log shouts

but to or away from

the listening

ears that

cannot hear logs shouting.

I am burning,

but the eyes say

aren’t we all, on the inside.

Are we not victims of fire

that building

threatens us with 

darkness?

I am burning

the log again shouts

So am I, 

the eyes reply

and in the shifting sound

there is only crackling.

  • Have you ever sat and watched a fire burn?

    • Yes
    • No

What do you think?

  1. Impressive poetry, Doc!
    I imagine the poem to answer the need for alignment between inner awareness and the mind that relies on the five senses.

    I don’t have a fireplace because there is no winter in my place but sometimes I burn a campfire in the yard and enjoy the flame, outside and inside.

    • It is the alignment within us. Truly an inner reflection. Fire becomes the danger within us, or the light by which we find our path.

      Fire, both welcomes us and destroys. The very fire is destructive. It changes the state of the wood, or building or person as it burns.
