Flames of Freedom

burning-trail.jpg

 

Pressure and heat and

the presence of flames

(that deadly hellish

Trinity) made her

kindling temperature

an inevitability. And oh!

the pain,

the raw ooze as fire

tattooed skin; but as she

surrendered, her fear

went up in smoke. Her

selfishness and pride

burned away, searing

suffering soul, until only

true silver remained. Now,

her light is a beacon –

infinity’s fire – a

path of illumination for

others to follow the

Flames of Freedom.

It’s pretty cool what you can do with a burning stick at a campfire…

    This has a feel like…fashioning a sword. A specific kind of sword… A katana, a most fearsome and, what I would say, most freeing kind of blade.

    This piece sets the heart to pounding some, and the temperature is more than the heatwave. The flames of freedom; very nicely penned. Inspiring.

      That’s how I was thinking of it, too – that once those unnecessary or negative things are burned away, we can light the way for others. A painful process, as you know – but liberating, and beautiful in the end!!

      I burned up a lot of battery power on that experiment, that’s for sure. 🙂 But some of them came out great! It was amazing to see how you can’t see the stick or the hand holding it at all, just the embers – fun!
