Bonfire

This is for Aaron

in a dark world the ember glows hot
a fragile tissue of hesitation flutters
ember catches the edge
a flame rises regal

heat of comfort and pain
old as time itself
fire ensures our survival
the planet turns

our world is alight, exposed
ready to be explored
taste the sweet and succulent fruits
touch the velvet textures

drowning in fire
enveloped by the heat
immersed in desire
quivering, without air to breathe

which need is quenched
which is inspired
how is it appeased
neither finds a living place alone

yielding to the embers desire
cry pain and pleasure
release mundane reality
reverence, devotion

the flame builds
silence deafening
blinding light of worship
elements blend, a pinnacle reached
