A sparkling galaxy

March 12, 2019

Old logs crackling, wild sparks head high into the sky;

flickering lights shine brightly, for many moments in my eye.


A winter fires knows, hottest sparks forever sparkle bright,

embraced in heaven’s galaxy, where bright sparks stay alight.


A fire can warm the coldest hands, or simmer campfire stews;

illuminating lonely hearts, or brighten dimmest views.


Eventually one strong spark, fly’s up and on its own;

its bound for new creation, or to burnout reaching home.


Left far behind are flawless flames, burning ever stronger;

There’s no need to fuel this fire, or linger any longer.


It‘s Journey upwards, through the smoke, as far as I can see;

until that spark finds new strength and courage to fly free.


While the fire embers flicker, a new life brightens our sky.

One lone spark, transformed today, is a star to please my eye.
