The fire rises in me

This post was last updated on August 12th, 2020 at 01:25 pm

The fire rises in me,
     and lights up my heart.
Like the sun!
Like the golden disk!
Opening, expanding, radiant —
     Yes!
     — a flame!

I say again:
     I don’t know
     what to say!

I’d fall silent
— If only I could —
but this marvel
     makes my heart leap,
it leaves me open mouthed
     like a fool,

urging me
     to summon words
     from my silence.
