With friends around, and a stump for a chair
the flames become more than merely a place
to flee the cold, but also a spot where
we might discover who we are. A casse
might be made that the luxuries which we
surround ourselves with do no more than hide
our true nature so that we cannot see
the truth of who we are. So set aside
what you do not need. Let friendship and flame,
story and song, be the catalyst to
self discovery. You won’t be the same
if you let yourself see yourself for you.
A chill darkness comes from lack of insight
Let the flames drive away the cold of night.
