I Swallowed a Fire Fly

                       I Swallowed a Fire Fly  
Birds of words perched
On branches of life
Love streamed from mind
Like a melody.
It's getting dark
A soccer game of fertility
Hot rain and plough furrow,
Seeds in labor pain
A fire fly flying around.

Volcanic ashes shroud love
Desert storm howling over life
I sitting on the window sill
Enmeshed branches of blood streams.

Fire fly buzzes around me
Deeply irritated
I stretched at
An unnatural angle
And swallowed the fire fly.

Later to come to know
The fly was the burning ember
My soul rotating while revolving
In it's fixed orbit, preordained.
