Embers orange glow, flickering in the darkness
Silently smouldering
Ideas, beliefs, causes, people
Unseen, almost ignored
Waiting patiently for life
For care, a thought
A move into consciousness to create air
Until its’ time

Orange embers glow, flickering in the darkness
Silently smouldering
Ideas, loves, hates, dreams
Shining brightly through thick black smoke
Stealing oxygen for life
For heat, a roar
Engulfing all that surrounds as it grows
Now it’s time
