Join me by the Fire—spoken poetry

 

walk towards the light, the living

glow against darkness            stumble,

shed your tangled skein, here by the fire

 

time     lengthening as it slows

to hear what you have to say

for the first time

words next to fire

freight of old trains passing

in the silence, flames

explain

 

here, let me feel as you are

unburdened, warm

by the fire
