The Flame

The Flame

The Flame

Since time began the origin of which remains shrouded in intrigue and wonder

The depth of which is matched only in the eyes of the beholder as they fall for the first time upon the flame that follows

The ferocity and purpose throughout the passing of time both idolised and revered

Its splendour and intent displays its absolute destructive and nurturing properties

With an almighty roar, the flames crescendo and devastate every corner of the earth as part of nature's plan and human failings

Every subsequent generation harnessing the very essence of the flame to suit the mood

From the first encapsulation within a fireplace as in 14th Century Mitton Hall

Now more likely to be found in the millennial pits which gleam in the light of the rising moon to meet the purpose of the generation to come, concerned with its healing properties.
