Glowing Coals
Glowing Coals

That ferocious roar,
that rampant blaze
has worn itself out,
burned up the air
and the fuel
to leave nothing more
than a warming glow.
It will go - eventually.
For now it emanates
a gentle heat.
Even the twigs that
hang over it
have no fear of being
captured by the flame,
but just stand there
safe in the knowledge
that this night
they will not be consumed.
A silver moon
lights up the sky
and there in the branches
of a nearby tree,
sits one solitary raven.
In the dimness of the night
it could be looking
the other way,
but I'll see it as a sentinel
watching over the glowing coals
until finally the flames
become extinguished.
