Flame -


Where I live, the winter months require I pay attention to the moon and the tides.  The entrance to the freeway can be underwater around the full moon high tide, so travel may require a bit of figuring and maneuvering and sometimes it means staying home.  I like that my leaving depends on the moon.

I am in reflective mode today, this first day of February. I notice the lengthening days within, and feel that tender new leaf response, even as the skies are gray.

Jack Gilbert has written that: 

We think the fire eats the wood. We are wrong. The wood reaches out to the flame.

Today, I am wood reaching out to flame, rock remembering that fire is one way I form, then, cooled, I rest.
