If you want to start a fire


It should be started 

On the ground

Surrounded by sturdy stones

Best to get your coals

Burning steadily

Rather than the 

Quick bursts of flame

That starve once they’ve 

Taken all the air.

With a steady fire

You can cook

Food to be shared

Or watch the ancestors dance

In the flames

Feed it 

Watch it.

Respect it.

Let it warm you.

And when you no longer 

Need its warmth.

Give it back to the earth.
