Posts Tagged ‘inner fire’



Time is not the enemy,

aging doesn’t dowse our fire.

Instead the boundaries burn away,

we seek the siren’s call

and grow wilder than a tiger’s eye.

Light flares from our fingertips

passion tingles up our spine

joy is found in minute pieces –

feathers, petals,

agates, leaves

and every atom spinning

through the dancing universe.

No, we don’t dream of rocking chairs,

we rocket like a comet

into life.
