Embers of the Soul



Embers of the Soul

©2017 Rolland G Smith


I sit and watch the embers wane

Within the place of fire.

It’s peace and calm removes all pain

If that was my desire.


Most souls, like me, must take the risk

Disrobing in the flame.

There will not be a nemesis

To pass off cause and blame.


I watch the loss; the logs demise

As chewing flame destroys,

And that is when I must surmise

That spirit’s love deploys.


A fire in its place in time

Becomes a gift from Source.

Its heat the breath of Sol’s sunshine.

My soul says, but of course.


So as I watch the fire die

And all my thoughts therein.

I know that I must always try

To let loves light begin.
