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.
