From smoldering coal

To roaring blaze;

From an idea, a spark

To fury. 

 

To prolong the inevitable

With cinder thoughts

Or consume the day

By inferno.

 

To carry carnage 

With the wind

Or be pewtered out

Under delicate raindrops.

 

Whether flesh or bone or wood,

Whether tame, or bright, or searing, 

We are all of us born from flame,

And all of us burning.
