Posted in Leaves on the Poet Tree (Poems)


tis far too easy to become enamored with an unhealthy flame
anger can take one only so far and most often to a fall
wings burning
the flyer plummets to the ground
it and lovers alight in pain

be not confused with the prideful light of the one who fell like lightning

wisdom knows
and love shows
that the right fire is of a more gentler kind
it does not burn the other
it is a source of warmth in the midst of the cold

in the sharing it becomes stronger until all the world is aglow
