Consuming Fire


“It is a fire that consumes me, but I am the fire.”
— Jorge Luis Borges


To be consumed by my own nature
and to design my own fête
A complicated game
made more complex
by inner fire burning
and the hues therein
Still I play on
making my moves with abandon
I work towards the endgame
while forgetting it exists
A king will be tipped
and the movement waylaid
but who’s hand shall do the tipping?
Still there is grace
while the queen is in play
I study my changing reflection
and it is now my move.
— G A Rosenberg

Burning Brightly


“I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me.”
— Joshua Graham


We’re all burning a path through life and sometimes our fires intersect in explosive ways. This can and often does happen between us and our birth families as we need to extricate ourselves almost phoenix like in order to make our own path. It often happens in relationships where our fiery paths start diverging and conflagration occurs. . It is then that we need to marshall our strength our inner fire the most and let it shine as bright as possible enough to light our path away from our current situation and show us the direction to the next chapter of our lives. This doesn’t have to happen on a physical level. Sometimes our inner light flares up brightest when it illuminates within.
Blessings, G
