Blazing River

 

 

I feel a fire within –

 

a spark ignites my heart

and floods my soul.

 

The Burning peace Engulfs my being.

 

But the flame flitters and fails –

 

an icy grate drains like a bottomless pit

choking ashes leave me panting.

 

With Cold and Thirst to swallow the world.

 

Then it kindles –

 

heating my heart like an ocean wave

streaming from my chest like a shining star.

 

The chasm consumed by the Blazing Flow.

 

The fire is water and the water is life –

 

a sapling grows in the street of the city

with healing leaves to make me whole.

 

But the River trickles from the throne of Fire.

 

My soul is a desert and my heart a wasteland –

 

blazing river flow within me

feed the sapling.

 

Let it grow.
