This fire that burns, flames so hot! that scares me not

FIRE BENEATH THE WINGS

This fire that burns

Flames so hot

That scares me not

The flames so hot

A fire

Burning, scorching, sweltering and searing

Around my body

Powerful

Controlling

Formidable

Feeling

Yet it is not burning

By body

The flames are flickering

Dancing, curling, swirling

Elevating and upraising

The flames

Through mind

Body and soul

A peaceful serenity

The stillness, the quietness and the calmness

All around

Wings unfurled

Raised to the heavens

Golden, golden

Transparency

Transparently

Eyes fixed to the sky

Golden stardust, golden stars

As far as can be seen

Arms outstretched

This body transfixed, mesmerized

Spellbound, hypnotized

I cannot resist, desist

Nor will I resist

This powerful energy

This fire

Does no harm

Here I stand in

Complete

Composure

Poised

Sang-froid

Cool

Calm

Collected

And at peace
