I knelt before the fire place.... watching the warm ash rise up to coat my hands... The trace of incense I burned upon the last embers... my little prayers rose up to meet my nostrils.. inviting me away from the cold.
My version of acquiescence to the afternoon... choosing immediately to dismiss any thoughts of loneliness.
It was lovely this conversation with fire gods coming to life...and sending up more prayers to comfort mine own heart of true love. Readying myself for my love's arrival.
I stared too long at the apparition my mind bringing me to that place... where all that could ever disturb is the beating of the heart.
There in beauties of time... stood this still imponderable man... I am yet again awed and humbled. Waiting for the kiss that only this fire could consume. I melt into the flames.
I stoke the embers that reach my very soul and add the aged limbs of a majestic tree ... Into this flame... offering forth the musky perfume of life yet again.
He is here now covering my body and my eyes close to reach with my heart for his very essence.
I am in Heaven.. again ...in light... in love... in sound...With him... my joy is reborn.
