Lighting the Fire

Moses had the bush

on fire, fully aflame

yet not burning.

You’ve heard

“Don’t touch that! It’s hot!”

for so long that

you’ve forgotten there is a flame

that licks,

pulls you like a moth toward it,

onto the path pre-lit for you.

Light the match.

The time is now.

You are the sacred.
