Echoes of Fire

The stuff of life is more than matter
feel emotion build and shatter
the intellect's desire
as order burns out in the fire of mind

Lost, unanchored, unsupported
as the pressure builds in soul's retort
and the sun glares
quite above the care
we feel we need

while each and every deed
each action taken
only leaves us feeling more forsaken
and clouds drift by
in endless skies of blue
and we know not what to do
to make it right

for today the sunlight only burns
while heart and soul
just ache and yearn for home
and no matter what we know

these feelings churn
as the endless fire of life
still burns within . . .
