rapture

rapture in the flame

rapture
in the dance

rapture is rising
reaching
the sky

rapture in the coal
rapture
in the glow

rapture in
containment
of the fire heart
lying quiet

hearth is a home
to rapture

a home
to worship

a kind of love
so …
let the dance
begin
add a stick
of rapture-in-waiting
to burn

~

Poem #543 from a series of poems drawn from the imagination and collected as: a Bachelard reverie.
