Ashes & Fire

Ashes and Fire

“We”
are embers
set ablaze~~~
ignited upon our
entry into
the vast mystery
we call
Life.

Sparks ascend—
at one time
there existed a
living inferno…
yet, ‘some-thing’
smothered the flame.

Call it what
you will—
(don’t waste time debating what it is or was),
but notice
all the
‘ashes’ left
behind—
years gone by.

Voices from our
past breathe
through the soils of time
reminding us
‘we’ are now
the light.

What will you
do with the
‘flicker’
bubbling up inside you?

A volcano
waits, and waits,
and waits.
It knows not
the time the
lava will at last
erupt
‘freeing’ itself
(its natural flow).

This moment—
this NOW
needs your
spark
to rise…rise
up from the black
smoke.

Release
the old
hidden self
buried beneath the
soot—
‘Capture’ the air.

Light this
world awaiting
the YOU that
you were
already born ‘into.’
