Abe V Rotor

Painting in acrylic, AVR 2004

Fire is life, fire is death;

nature's first invention,

ultimate destruction,

yet comfort by the hearth.

Fire is wild, fire is tame,

source of prime energy,

or friend turned enemy;

or glowing wand of fame.

Fire bares all, covers all;

creeps under, runs uphill;

in summer or in chill,

all things short or tall.

Fire, the first whim, last cry,

at home, in battlefield;

the first arm, the first shield,

the worst fear, the last sigh. ~
