The Gift of FIRE
By Tina Olivero
Out with the old world, this fiery time for change calls the new.
As it ignites we realize we have also been ignited
and in so we have been granted permission to move forward.
New doors open and new realms become available.
Is it not fascinating to witness nature clear the past on our behalf?
Curiously we may now ask, "Where to from here?"
Speaking to us we hear, "We are not our possessions,"
"We are not our former knowledge,"
"We are not our circumstances."
one that pushes to the surface, like phoenix it whispers softly,
"The power of this fire will never exceed
the power of community, love and kindness."
when everything is burned to the "ground,"
we are finally grounded in the greatest gift of knowing,
from nothing we can create anything.
all that was is gone, all to be is now here;
and who we are is a new set of eyes that clearly sees through flames.
Sparks from nothing, we are the light and the possibility of anything.
