Burning Embers (A New Song)
Perhaps a song within still shimmers…
like the embers of a long forgotten fire
awaiting new kindling.
The old lyrics forgotten, as the logs that
did burn, that warmed the soul no longer
in harmony with the spirit:
…stripped of the notes that once crackled
and sparked when a harsh stirring
occurred in the heart
…a cord or two gone up in life’s flames
sending with it a chorus of pain
rising in blinding smoke.
Perhaps within the ember’s glow rests
that new song with a refreshing melody…
hope glowing in the ashes.
