A Property of Fire



A Property Of Fire


Fire produces

the essential temperature

for acquiring a burst of power.

Flames dance and sway,

and stream in all directions,

pressing away images of inefficacy.

The crude dampness of tears

disappears within the ash left behind

after the conflagration,

all doubts absorbed.


Fire in the belly. when needed,

letting all who have it,

find the strength to transform themselves

into the most salient rendition

of a bannered paladin.
