The Flames

Guttering light wherefore are thou?

Lit two, illumination sought,

warmth for a late night soul

who wonders,

wither the flame beside

is strong enough

to be raised up

by the fire I hold.

Embers warm after the fact

and are good

and are reflective.

But I would enjoin thou dearest

to move closer to the fire

and feed the source of it

with me.

Close this book, for now,

for tomorrow is another day, this day,

in fact, is all we have.

That and hope.
