We Will Take Our Fires... - Poem by Marshall Gass

we will take our fires
to light the stars
and paint the horizons
with its flames of red

and from the ashes
we will rise again and again
with phoenix wings
to soar the heavens
searching for the real meaning
of love.

We will take our fires
to the icy polar winds
if we ever feel the chill
of not knowing
what love means.

we will take our fires....
Author Notes

Simple and adorable, trying to create imagery opposing each other.
Indian Poets did a great job of poems like this.
