A poem for today …

 Flames of the Heart

By Jennifer Knox

Flames of the heart — can we crash and burn again?

Wind me up, then let my clock-work start!

Clench me, wench me, play with me, stay with me.

Be one in the echoing rooms of my heart.

I think of you in the grassy knoll

Where sweetly reign the bee and sparrow.

In our minds eye we can always go

Where times of love blot out life's sorrow.

Love's autumnal passage is a ride

Through fiery colors wistfully embraced,

Fond memories drip like honey from the lips

And slowly the saber rises from the lake.

Even as love's autumn leaves turn again

Flames of the heart, can we crash and burn again?
