Current mood: warm
I love you, fire. You are so warm and flickery. I can watch
you for hours. You make a happy place, where people can gather,
where the dogs and lie and be happy, or where one can sit alone
with a book and listen as you celebrate with the most basic
forces of nature. You can destroy and desolate - and make ready
for the new. You close the circle.
Fire you also provide a place for reflection. As you grab my
focus, and hold my gaze, other distractions fade. Among your
glow and dance I see a mirror - an emotional mirror. In you I
see lost loves and missed chances. I see where I've let people
down, or pushed them when it wasn't helpful. I see how I've
always been old, and patronizing without being a leader. I see
my own hypocrisy, as I just get done filling a big bucket of
advice for a good friend - only to see myself at the bottom.
Fire, I don't like you any more!
