Becoming Fire

For the past four months I have been studying Shamanism with Caroline Kenner in the Washington, DC area. Each month, we explore a different area, and this last class was all about fire. Sometimes I am lucky enough to receive some kind of artistic or poetic inspiration, and this past class, I was very happy to receive this poem about fire.


The outburst of light,
Pouring out
Outpouring as from an exploding star
Expanding expanding expanding
Becoming the Universe;
the brightest flame of them all.
It consumes the star
but creates life.
The beginning of ALL
Fire fire beginning in fire
Diving into the liquid fire
The lava of the volcano
The flow that gives life to earth, birthing continents
It begins in flames and ends in flames.
So big,
So grand,
No human words can speak it,
too brilliant for human eyes to see.
Shango reaches up to grasp it
Is burnt and dies
And is remade a God.
It consumes. It hurts.
It frees.
As the ashes fall,
it preserves.
White hot in the black night,
never to be fully controlled.


For those who follow astrology, I do not have a lot of fire in my chart, but I do have a fascination with it. I leave you today with a painting I did some years back about fire.
