To The Fire


A Long night to a pilgrim,
and a lonely eye,
a vision to a questioning mind,
Gods temple,
camp fire burning high,
forest green, lush and still,
dark lonely unfulfilled,
water edge flows fast,
deep current could pull me down,
must find my way around,
the jagged stones,
to cook the fest I carry,
I find my way to liberty.
hunger soon I will not be.

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
