The Strix- Fire

Did you know, if we humans hadn’t uncovered how to make a fire, we wouldn’t exist today? However, I strongly believe, if our ancestors didn’t possess a fire to even want to survive: a fire deep within to explore, to prosper, to follow their dreams…We wouldn’t be here either.
Do you still have that fire within? It’s in our genes, in our souls: feel it, embrace it and start glowing!

Fire & Tides

 

 

fire licked sky

cobalt night time

waves brushed by

kissed with a hiss

memory of us

here, barefoot

locked embrace

words understood

in their silence

we knew

as the fire knew

this moment

was born to die

replaced by tides

along shoreline

 

defiant

we stoked the fire

higher, higher

our love grew

gave birth to stars

in its amber flare

our eyes gazed

into the other

and saw eternity
fire or no fire

*******************************************************************
I crossed the hurdles all

I stepped on the thorns

my feet bled yet I had no plans to stop

kept going, taking the wind on my face

held the falling trees in the storm

 

there came a moment then

it made me feel human

a little weak, a little fragile

I so thought of giving up

 

days passed and then passed weeks

I measured the length of my absence

absence from my zeal

absence from my fire within

 

as i looked inside of me deep

I still could find a little spark still struggling

never refusing to give up to remain lit

it fought courageously all the darkness around

 

and I am, yes I am

still sparkling with the tiny spark

starting to look out for the day

with all my courage and my will

 

and I am, yes I am

to become the FIRE myself one day

to glow to the purity

until nothing could think of putting me off again

I shall light until eternity

And the fire burns within

And the fire burns.
It brightens the dark night, it kills, it takes life, it destroys.
It burns further. Never extinguishing. It roars in the air.
Up in the open, with nothing stopping it.
Not the freezing cold night, not the waters from the storm, not the winds from the trees,
nothing.
It lives on, killing everything that tries to come in the way.
It goes higher with every obstacle. It reaches the skies.
It burns red, fierce, strong.
The smoke warms up the cold night and blurs the scene in sight.
It is invincible. It has colors. It is the heat with uncountable faces.
It is the faces, the shades of life.
It is par every force, every energy and every power.
It is the fire that burns
WITHIN.

Under the brilliance of the evening skies
It’s a play worthy of sight
The embodiment of the color of fire
Dark and tantalizing strokes of crimson
A scintillating mimicry of red lava
She’s watching the sky light up like never before

With the silent ruffle of leaves nearby and far
The almost inaudible treading on dryness by scurrying creatures
She stands among everything pure and airy
Only slightly aware she’s joined by the sounds of the now dark meadow

A starry night was always her comfort
But watching blazing colors dance in between darkness
This was her new home
A place she knew her heart wanted to be
A place she could scream all she wanted and received nothing back
Her place of utter and complete euphoria

Standing in a place unknown to her kind
Somewhat wedged in between her poisonous world around
The most radiant light dancing off her lit up skin
This was her new home

The flame ignited within her incandescent soul
Stood no chance against what she saw on the outside
Breathing in the new yet fascinatingly comforting air
She puts out the scorching fire deep inside of her
Turns her back to the now darkening fiery skies
And finds her place under the fire that broke out in the firmament.
Under the brilliance of the evening skies

and you slept soundly
in the world
that was on fire

 

wake up and behold
the first and last
light you’ll ever see

 

kindle this fire
give it all
that’s yours

 

for once in your life
you will be
invincible

 

know that the falling snow
the pouring rain could
never quench this fire

 

know that the sweet warmth
is often followed
by destruction

 

know that destruction

is not always

bad
