We had forgotten

In the turning of the clock

In the slide to dark afternoon

Lay a deeper power


We had forgotten

The power of the fire

The gift from the beginning

The reaction of intelligence


And in the darkness

Around the fire

Held within the flames

We remembered

    • I think there’s a lot in that, Jaye. I suspect it goes even further back, to when we first had fire, and did what later became known as scrying, into the flames – as natural a part of our natures as could be! Thank you for the reblogs x
