Heat Rites



On a dark night when a fire’s lit
  Begins an orange glow that sparks 
                   
                     To burst into tongues of flames that
                      Lick the innocent air.
               
          A fire blazes red-hot
          And splashed with water, it is not …
     
  On a sultry summer day, the sea shimmers
  With silver sparkles, warmed; in the aftermath
  Of white crested waves that lick the shore 
  And spent, they die again to be reborn
  To ride a wave to kiss the shore,
  And be no more…       
.
