Fire Sirens in a Field of Grass

Updated on July 3, 2012

Sharp aromas steel the attention

Of a silent night

The shadow of her perfect figure

Is the kindling for the growing fire

She screams,

Breaking the silence

Stars fall like sparks from the sky

Her voice echoes in infinity
Hiding in the tall grass
As she pulls apart the trinity
And throws her body in the fire

Dancing in the flames
A delicate motion show
Her feet are glowing embers
Sweat drips from her face
Immortal expression of ecstasy
Her thoughts wont soon remember
The moon is glowing red
Her heart is growing tender
The heat brings her to her knees
But she will not surrender

She screams out to the Gods
With no response
As the ashes turn to dust
The thickening void is not her loss
Fire engulfs the tall grass
The earth sits still
As the ground is covered in frost

She throws her hands up
To the empty heavens
And like a child
She begins to cry
Tossing the fire into the sky

The land beneath falls into darkness
She Curls up underneath the ashes

Teardrops fall and soak into the dirt
They fertilize and give birth
To a new field of grass
Sprouting out of the frost

Brilliant wings of an eagle unfold
Behind the burns on her shoulders
She takes flight toward the rising sun
Far from the red skies of fire

      What a strange and wonderful poem this is. The last verse is really inspired.
