life of fire (a concerto)

IMGP3700 - Copy (1024x747)

life of fire (a concerto)

composition beginning
with timidity,
a delicate foray into
existence,
perhaps lingering for fear of the known,
the breathless destruction
that comes with being

fire

a confidence is gathering
swiftly, with success
and orchestral fuel,
a collaboration that we know will destroy,
but this can be ignored
in the harmony of beauty ablaze

a finale soaring with freedom,
a reach for the solitude of release –
an intoxicant,
the flames rage to escape the coals
but the dying has already begun,
and the concerto
will smoulder
and be
razed
