– starting slow –

Friday started with a slow burn…

agonizing and pathetic;

the morning clouds above were such proof.

Signs of a real fire were shown in

the following hours –

a spoonful of spark to tease and

a faint flicker to ignite hope…

or at least a sad substitute for it.

Making way through the midday marker,

a blaze could almost be felt,

even with the possibility of imagination

fooling me, scarring me like before.

Soon after…

a backdraft blew through,

erupting right through me and

still consuming me just the same.

What started as a slow burning Friday became

an outbreak of flames…

inspiring and triumphant;

the afternoon clouds above were such proof.
