Playing With Fire

playing with fire s

There is no passage through this flame:
frame
of secrets, frame of illusion.
Shun
the riddle of the blood,
red
of matter incomplete,
heat
rising in rapture.
Capture
instead the reflection, bright
light,
breath of form:
reborn.

Poem in response to the echo verse challenge from Jane Dougherty.

    I love how the line lengths, the echo rhymes, and the visual centering all combine to make me pause and consider each line before spilling onto the next–a push-pull rhythm, a dance.
