Fire to Fire

Burning embers that never knew a name
Licking flames always playing some game
We always wonder where it was they came from
If they were just suddenly there or somehow made
We wonder what the glowing has to do with
If it has some deep story or a short quip
Or maybe it stands for something more
Like a deep, longing love that never ceases
Or a story that speaks the same metaphor over and over again.
I wonder if they fire has a deeper purpose,
If it’s there for a reason
Maybe it burns with passion
Like a pianist playing his very own.
Or perhaps it blazes with a lust for something unknown.
Unfortunately, we may never know.
