In Fire We Walk

Forest Spirit by Ginger Kelly

In fire we walk
tied, gagged – bastard spawn

In fire we talk
torn, bloody – warrior of dawn

In fire we howl
cold, moon – sorrow’s light

In fire we sink
worn, shackles – tortured night

In fire we yearn
silver, eyes – hunter of love

In fire we swim
spirit, sea – soul of dove

In fire we sew
silent, cosmic – mender of heart

In fire we dance
electric, string – puppet of art

In fire we burn
rotating, chasm – flame of earth

In fire we thirst
fleshless, bones – river of death

In fire we see
low, invisible – ghost of far

In fire we dream
eternal, lost – fragment of star
