After the fire

fire dreaming 2Fire dreaming . June 2013


Imagining sparks from earth’s stones

I envisioned the extension

of light


Coalescing with heat

I opened like a flower

once again

to the erogenous

seduction of words


After the fire

the waiting


are poised

as I gaze into the unknown

placing my trust

in the river

  1. nice poetry, J…reminds me of this wonderful passage: “When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for you to stand upon or you will be taught to fly.” ~Patrick Overton, The Learning Tree: (Poems)…either way, there is gain…there is awakening…there is transformation…


    • Like water in a still pond
      images and symbols are reflected but they also begin to surface
      at the same time from the depths of the pond
      As they coalesce,the holographic insight of fire and light comes in waves
      informing and transforming the blueprint of my life.
      I’m familiar with this alchemy now
      even though it moves through me differently each time
      and I’m seeing the process for me is much deeper within community


  2. Erogenous seduction of words… love the sensation of these.
    I love your drawing too – it speaks to me of flight, as well as a sense of straining at the knots… 🙂
