"We pass the word around; we ponder how the case is put by different people, we read the poetry; we meditate over the literature; we play the music; we change our minds; we reach an understanding. Society evolves this way, not by shouting each other down, but by the unique capacity of unique, individual human beings to comprehend each other." - Lewis Thomas

Child of Fire.

"There is a veil that keeps us from the knowledge of others, it is not our job to remove this veil as it is protection but much more complex is to allow the veil to speak to us for them..." - Authors note 17

A child born of flame
Citadel of fire
Cries of Weeping Willows
Forest ablaze.

Nymphs and Dryads dance
With their sulfurous child
Breath of smoking shadow
Emptiness consumed, blast of light.

The lonely void filled
Conceptual eyesight
Lost soul, condemned
Before a word spoken.

  1. Well you know that I"m not so well versed in poetry, but I know what I like.

    This piece had me pulling my hair out a little bit, because it reminded me of something else I read a long long time ago. I can't for the life of me remember where or the title of it, but it definitely sparked a memory.

    This was great...I would suggest that you check out The Clean White Page. You will throughly enjoy the writing, as Tina is excellent...

    Keep em coming and I'm sure that people are going to follow you... You have that talent bud...
