Day 301 – around the fire

Monday, June 28, 2010
Day 301
1:34 am

around the fire

we can sit

succumbing to the wine
and the bonfire

exchange tears and
words of young wisdom
and gratitude

and talk about
loss
and contemplation
in the wild of these
times

we are caught between oil
and magnificence

between perpetual war
and efficacy

between division and
the birth of everything
at our hands
on our cue
upon our determinations

let’s stay here
and cup the resources
we see in each others eyes

there,
is life

and death, then, to
all that attempts
to destroy the love
i see in yours

it is what i keep
for the sake of
nothing but love

let’s rise in the fall
of all
who set out to
breathe nothing
of
love

there,
is fire
