Burning, licking, mesmerizing
dancing, even tantalizing
a fire burning deep within
and then the flash, the sparks
arising in a glory of exuberance

to shower down like sparkling rain
that somewhere will create
a waterfall cascading
deep down into a pool
whose depth cannot be measured

yet it taunts and teases
hot bodies just ease into
the coolness of its satiation
and drink its sweet libation
becoming more and more
a living stream
of fire that lives and dreams
itself into reality again
