Daily missive for Monday the 20th of November.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Monday the 20th of November.

I burn
Feeling the heat
From inside out
A Bessemer converter
A melting pot
Of emotions
Pour into ingots
Store them away
On a pallet
Until the cooling
Solidifies the pig iron
In my soul
Carbon based
Life forms
Are a useful tool
Even the
Ashes are good
For the soil
Sketch with intimacy
A picture of life
Finger paint
Recollections of smelting
When the heart
Is poured into a mould
The die is cast
Minutes count
Structural changes occur
At a microscopic level
Atoms rearrange
Everything is changed
In a cold water plunge
Tempered emotions
With a keen edge
For knowledge
And in the resting
The fevered brain
A soothing purity
In the slow down
A crucible of healing
A spontaneity
In the re-kindling
I am a high
Tensile steel blade
A blue blood
Of finer feelings
Deeply honed
Nestled in
Remnants of love
Tinder dry
As matchwood
They light the fire
Even in a deep freeze
At absolute zero
I will burn for you.
