A Prayer to Fire

I face south
and call upon fire 

I call upon the dreamy flickering
of a candle’s flame 

I call upon the quiet joy
of a campfire by night

I call upon the fire that
clings onto anything in order to grow

I call upon the crackling flames
that reach for the skies without apologies

I call upon the inferno that consumes
and destroys all that no longer serves

 I call upon the fire inside
the flame of inspiration and creation

 That fire inside that is sometimes
nothing but a glowing ember

 And sometimes a fire that
roars like my soul
But always what I need it to be

 I call on you, fire
and invite you in
