Have you ever really listened,
to a fire?
The closely knit rhythms,
of sweet percussion.

The magical sense of time,
standing still.
The ability, if only for a brief moment,
to receive with open arms,
a gentle calming of the soul.

Each day brings new pleasures.
Broken hearts and broken dreams.
New hope, for inner peace.

Listen some day,
to the wisdom the fire speaks.
Open up your mind and your heart
and hear the sweet percussion.
