14 Degrees of Fire: A Poet on Fire

14 day of 42

14 Degrees of Fire


Sometimes it just about the passion to write...letting the results go...


You, Darkness

You, darkness, that I come from
I love you more than all the fires
that fence in the world,
for the fire makes a circle of light for everyone
and then no one outside learns of you.

But the darkness pulls in everything-

shapes and fires, animals and myself,
how easily it gathers them! -
powers and people-

and it is possible a great presence is moving near me.

I have faith in nights.

                   -Rainer Maria Rilke
