In yet another testament to “my life doesn’t always go to plan”, the book review I promised of the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness has been postponed to next week. Unfortunately I haven’t finished reading The Book of Life yet. So I’m swapping next week’s content for this week, and next week will be the review. And it will be next week as the book is due back at the library in a couple of days.
This week I’d like to share a short poem with you. This is one of my more recent poems. I wrote it earlier this year. Most of what I’ve shared on this blog so far has been older writings, poems I created in college. The poem could probably use more work, but then I’m never one hundred percent happy with my writings and it’s hard to know when to stop. Sometimes life seems to rage out of control; like a fire. The flames change everything, burning away the old, and taking you down a new path. That’s the inspiration for this poem.
The Changing Flame
By B. Forrester
Withstand the heat of the changing flame,
Your life will never be the same,
Take your dreams and make them soar,
Fly higher than you did before,
When defying gravity,
Dreams become reality.
