dancing fire


the autumn leaves fall

like dancing fire from blue skies

waters begin to freeze

mountains don’t ask why

for when you wait for long

deep down you know

some things take a very long time

we prove we love by sometimes letting go


the buttercups have gone to sleep

the silver sun floats amidst gray skies

yes there is a life

with no lies

where we drift

from one continent to another

rediscovering life again



as time ticks

and life goes by

may we be as brave as

monarch butterflies

find beauty in laugh lines

and fearless silver strands

gaze at the beautiful heavens

wait for the dancing fire to fall into our hands

    1. Thank you, Steve. I came across Helen Keller’s words today and it resonated with me…”So much has been given to me; I have no time to ponder over that which has been denied”. It is Fall here in Vancouver and so much beauty all around…lots of dancing fires 🙂
