Fanning The Flame

Being is to



As seedlings are

to blooms


Today as to




unto noon


Sparks beget

a brilliance


As fans beget

the flame


Breath into

a sonnet


A child

aptly named


A thought

once spoken freely


The scent

of chosen prey


A smile

when returning


A love

—to give away


(Dreamsleep: October, 2022)
