Grace in the Fireplace


out of power
out of type
so many blogs
so much hype

the fire in its place
lays words of grace

no hum
no ho
take in
the glow

the fire in its place
lays words of grace

thoughts like smoke
up they flue
nothing else
to do

warm fire in its place
such grace

  5. I hope the power is restored and you're not too cold. There is something lovely (and spirit restoring) getting back to the basics like fires and quiet.

  7. I feel your pain, Jerry.

    We used to lose power regularly when we lived in Southfield. A fireplace is a real blessing in times like that!

    (We'd be screwed if we lost power now - we've got no fireplace in our Westland home!)
