Fire and Ash

Die to old ways 
Sacrifice 
What was once life 
Smolders to nothingness

Even in ash
A flash of vibrance  
Signals the inevitable 

New growth 
The design of Life 
Flame and wings, one. 

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old but on building the new.” -Socrates 

The fire under the ash,
blanketed, like white snow,
covering dark remnants of expectations
energy spent…

In that bed of ash, tucked in,
Small seed spark rests,
dormant,  dreaming new life.
