In The Elements

Blessed be the heat

Of fire

Fed by wood

That held on

To the driven strength of home.

Let air

Breathe through

The flames

That will allow warmth

To the water

While the earth

Hammocks your body

And your eyes

Address heaven’s stairs.

    • Thank you, Crispina.
      One of the things I love about sitting by the fire at night (rarely though I get to do so), is the connection to time before time and the present time and all the time that will be … and the basics of elemental comforts. It really can get as simple as that, can’t it?

      • I know what you mean. I find it easiest to connect, back and forther, through time when I’m walking through countryside where my ancestors walked. There’s a footpath I use which connects two villages (by road is miles more to travel), and in the late 1770s my father’s several-times grandfather walked that path (which then was a cart-track) to marry his love. I had no idea many of my ancestors came from this area when I moved here.
