Pentecost - Year C

sitting campfire
kindling starter
teepee shaped
larger wood
at hand

preparation made
a spark
starts it
tender blowing
keeps it

additions made
darkness avoided
wood used
coals accumulate
cooling eventuates

light begun
light continued
light faded
light gone
night begun

night fears
dark room
waiting waited
forehead flames
banked - out

eden vacated
desert wandered
land exiled
jubilee ignored
pentecost doused

and here
we are
awaiting Prometheus
bound leaving
us alone

remembering campfires
rubbing neighbors
into sparks
wind blown
fire starters
