October’s Fire

October 2, 2011

It begins

the Fall of Night

Darkness embraces life

Saturating the light

Dim violet flames

The Fire Dervish

With Burning Heart

Tends a garden

of Flame

Gather

Light the Bar-B-Q

Hand out drinks to all your friends

Conversations start

Solstice

December 22, 2007

 

Let this flame lessen the Dark of this the longest Night so that the Sun may find us well come Morning.

 

 

May the Dark conceal you from Fear
May the new Light never blind you

Coal Burning Fire

November 21, 2007

The 200 watt bulb illuminates
A rusting Pot Belly Stove
Snow turns to steam
Rising from the furnace
As a damp December snow
Attempts to mask it’s presence
Low ceiling clouds lie obscured
By the nights indifference
Christmas trees placed around the stove
Form a shelter against the wind
Huddling within the alcove a man
Stealing the warmth for himself
Feeding the diminishing flame
He takes a stone from the pile
Woolen fingers open the grate
Tossing a lump of coal
Into the low banked
Crimson fire
He leaves the grate open
To watch the stone ignite
Thin wisps of black flame
creep along the edges
Of burning stones
That once covered the world
As continental swamps
Teeming with Life
In the silent quintessence
Of the snowy eve
A man is pulled
Into embers
Older than his race
