Fire And Ash

Burns so brightly

The light inside us.

Never entirely going out.

Never extinguished.

Never stomped out.

Always burning.

Add the fuel of your choice.

Dance, write, paint, play, laugh.

It’s all the same.

It will all turn the ash to fire blazing bright.

Live fully in every moment.

As if dying were not an option,

But a choice that we would make when

A time came to fully embrace the ash.

Let the fire burn brightly

For all to see.

Give life your all.

Only Time Will Tell

Time, it speaks in rhymes

I cannot hear.

Words of nonsense

I cannot fear.

Time, it speaks in moments gone.

In forever after this moment on.

If time will only tell,

I fear I cannot hear it well.

As I place my dreams upon

The moment now

Not a moment gone.
