“I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.”  Jack London.

A Hoping Of Love

Myths and legends come and go,
holding a place to stand,
a refuge lurking beneath
the tinsel of time
should it be needed,
to heal the wounds
encrusting the heart,
by unwrapping the self
as a vulnerable gift
of glow,
a hoping of love.
