The Distance Burns…

A poem

Ever so slowly
When the flame is alive
Consuming thoughts
Absorbing love sparks
A truth
Creating a mirage of life

Yes
A life of passion
The here
And everlasting now
A sweet kiss
A forever hello
The distance
Between love and life
Is nothing
They bind together
Like yellow blue flakes
Of the flame

See the wingspan
An eagles truth
Soaring
Towards the light
The sun
Takes one to heights unknown
To feel
The heat
A sensation
Eternity

Journey
Explore your heart
You are protected
As adventure burns
Making salt crystals
Of the white sand
Glow and glisten
Forever
Forever
The distance burns…
