The Fire; The Rose; The Moon

The fire blazingly bright

Beneath the dark night sky

Bringing me constant warmth

And lighting up my indistinct life


A single long-stemmed rose of red

With velvet petals soft and smooth

Allowing these beautiful, vibrant hues

To color my existence of black and white


The lustrous full moon so vividly clear

Illuminating all that is dark and gloomy

A guiding light for those hopelessly lost

Filling their every being with eternal serenity


What are you but the fire; the rose; the moon?

Turning dark obscurity into beaming luminosity

Transforming malevolence into benevolence

Yet—yet; This fire; this rose; this moon— is mine.
