April – Elements: Fire

Fire

In the beginning
you gathered the wood
these tiny bits
of consciousness,
data that would later
build the pyre
little tidbits
stories

And then came
the match
the Flint
the spark
that ignited
the truth
and started
the fire

Sacred it burns

Gathers the others
to come to the flames
warm yourself
on the truth

Fire cleanses
even if it destroys

And from the ashes
the previously invisible
curls as smoke
and takes form
the goddess
reignited

Taking her place
as strength
as courage
bold
warm
knowing
