  • Mood:

Match

Strikes against the tinder,
Once, twice, three times.
Spark ignites.
Bursting, glorious blaze,
Calms, smoldering steadily.
Infrequent flickers, left or right, but still burns.
Inching onward, consuming wood,
Blackening, twisting, shriveling.
Torch dies, flame extinguished.
Yet at the tip, faint glow remains,
Memory of heat.
