Spark of Darkness – Steve Tanham

Reblogged from Sun in Gemini:

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

  2. But here, the slide into darkness is decreed by the government. The power of the fire is far more interesting and elegant.
