Animal Fire

they gathered,
tribal fur, feathers and scales,
marching orders procured
each to meet at the raging spire.

skyscrapers reaching higher
the elephant balancing atop the frail,
the wise owl descended, preaching
his wings, Lifting Spirits
long buried ‘neath Sorrow.

man swiftly tilting,
congregation edges toward time
space rustles spawning salmon
singing an earthly rhyme.

praise the soil,
wind and birth,
fire songs and smoky windows,
gather ‘neath the raining clouds
atop the mountain hearth.
