From the Smallest Embers Rise the Beasts of Fire Like the Phoenix
And the hot ashes from their flapping wings fall on snow-white clouds and plunge the earth into darkness.
From the smallest embers I drew fire to trace your form on the forest floor
And now walls of flame race through the landscape of twigs and thorns
In the roar of this great fire, I hear the laughter of that single ember.

  1. I am not sure what it is you are saying in the poem... all I know is that its essence is from a place so deep and pure and it ignites wonders and a spiritual flame in the reader. Me at least! I love the piece.
