ASHES & SPARKS

 

It drifted over from across the river
A beautiful song
Settling over our small fire...
Lingering
Singing softly
To us both
Mixing
With the wind
We raised our eyes
Knowing glances
Without words
So beautiful
Ashes and sparks
Lifted
By the wind
Carried by the song
Dancing slowly
Spinning
Over our small fire
Before slowly
Drifting
Out over the water
And away
Lingering still
In my mind
