Ephemeral Flame

Do not let the brightness of my flame fool you
I am as fragile as any other
When I roar, fuelled by heat, remember:
Tomorrow I will be embers

My life is warm, is light, is colour
I climb, I dance, I shine.
But rains spit and winds whip
Take heat while there is still time.

  1. I love this, such strength but such vulnerability. Beautifully captured.


  2. I hope you will be Phoenix-like rather than ephemeral…
    Shine on, Rachel.
