Burn

Fledgling flame,
transferring across space,
match to wick,
to breed anew
or split in two
and live again.

Glowing power,
silent and brooding,
content, steady, and proud,
recognizing you’re beautiful,
lethal,
and ready to spring.

Warming to the hand,
a caress upon the eyes,
possessing darkness behind your light
…you tolerate influence,
but if abused
you burn.
