The Gift of FIRE
By Tina Olivero
Fires come into our lives for all the right reasons.
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.
What was, is no longer, what is to be... awaits.
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?"
Completions rest in the ashes and the past disappears in the wind.
Speaking to us we hear, "We are not our possessions,"
"We are not our former knowledge,"
"We are not our circumstances."
Suddenly we have a seed deep beneath the rubble,
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."
Seen so clearly when we get to nothing,
when everything is burned to the "ground,"
we are finally grounded in the greatest gift of knowing,
from nothing we can create anything.
The fire has spoken, taken and given
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.
