Sort of a follow up to my previous poem "Power"


Burn

How do I find kinship, warmth, safety and people I can trust?

I ask her as we stand among the ash and ice of other people

Her glowing eyes meet mine
her warmth a fire and terrible power I cannot resist

I fall to my knees in submission as her words ring within me

"Seek the dying spark of compassion within others
Reach out and gently channel love and warmth to into those glowing embers

nurture and love until

their flames can sustain themselves"
