"Fire" poem by Tracy Miller

FIRE

 

Peering out from the darkness, the light grows stronger.

 

Reaching out to feel it's warmth.

 

My skin begins to glow.

 

First, my my arm like a golden diamond with a fire in it's belly.

 

The velvet light and warmth creeps further up my body until it envelopes all of me.

 

I feel weightless, like my body is lifted by the sun's arms.

 

Lifting my head, I drink in all of it's energy.

 

I can take a clear deep breath and the light fills every crevice of my being.

 

Slowly rising, burning brighter. Higher and higher.

 

I feel the rays beaming back out into the light.

 

My mouth falls open to release the glorious energy.

 

I am the diamond with my belly burning bright with fire. 

 

Reaching out to lighten all the shady corners.

 

This is my blessing.

Beautifully written Tracy!  I know that we all interpret others' poetry differently; to me it sounds like you're embracing freedom; that you want to grow.  I loved reading it!

I have now read this many times and I seem to see something different every time.  but I think that is what poetry is. and maybe  what it should be.  thank you tracy!
