On Fire & Life

We are a fire of unfamiliarity 

jumping into the night, an abandonment 

of reason, a run through what-ifs 

oranges seared in retinas

yellows molted on tongues

a language to be discovered 

on our journey through hard times

or joyful bursting hearts

instinctual and primal

because we are atoms and molecules 

and the stuff that makes up life 

struggling, yearning, learning

keeping the embers alive

    perfect timing – I’m browsing old journals and reading poems by others that I love. Now I’ll have yours. 🙂
