soft flickering flames

stirring thoughts primordial

mesmerizing glow


potent force subdued

dance of light as cinders glow

memories unbound


consume to create

fearsome gift of warmth and sight

purify fouled worlds


phoenix rise renewed

shake off suffocating ash

winged flight sets fresh course

i'm sitting here watching the last glows
that set off this musing and am as primordial
as what's consumed, and from the dying fire
that has purified 'fouled worlds' (i love how you put that)
the new phoenix rises and 'sets fresh course'..
when this level of thought and intelligence and craft with words
combine the work is a sheer pleasure for the reader.
This is very fine indeed, Carolyn.

All quite powerful. I love the mesmerizing glow of cinders in a campfire in the forest.
