Fire Goddess


Fire Goddess

Licking
at the air
Shooting
sparks at the stars
Dancing
flames that sway the spirit
Fire
burns the mind and smolders the soul

Rising up from the earth
Born of ancient forests
No friendly fairy
no elegant elf
nor simple sprite or knowledgeable gnome
comes from igniting the quest

Red Salamander familiar
A piece of the sun at midnight
She is not to be called on whim
for Her wisdom's key is vigilance

If one wishes to burn
one must learn to dance
on fire
