Bonfire

1 Comment

Silent trumpet sounds

Forewarning…inviting

The oblivious and innocent

Into vacuous voids,

ethereal eclipses -

Angelic wings dance blithely

Dripping tiny baubles of hope

Melting in mid-air

Dreams, splayed like kindling

Beneath a roaring fire

Where sparks ignite the dirt

With stars too heavy to fly toward the moon

Suffocating lest fingertips burn

Leaving ashy-white memories

Subtly heralding promises of pleasure.

Etched on mental panes

Snowflake images of perfection

transforming teardrops

with the heat from one

quiet sigh.

I wear many hats, but the common thread that runs through all of them is that I am a writer. I love all forms of art and creativity. I am always open to learning and finding new ways to appreciate the unique qualities and gifts the world has to offer. © Copyright 2012 by Donna Jaye Dotson. All rights reserved.
