To Find the Fire (November 7, 2010)

To find the fire in my own words
I read from Stan on his birthday,
Remembering him for Anne, another stranger I adore
I read Frances's words, knowing she's described it just as it is

To find the fire for my own words
I gaze at David and John
With and without sound and motion

To find the fire of my own words
I search in the everyday around me
In the voices of others known
And those too far away to know
But close enough to admire

I type slower than the thoughts and words come,
Too slow to catch them all
But please, fast enough to kindle the fire in my own words
