Teacup Blaze

Originally posted 12/14/2013.

You’re such a compact bonfire.

A little heat
would be welcome,
and yours
is no little heat.

Charring
can be a cleanse.
The healing that follows it
is your doing too.

I want to put you
in the cup of my hands
and hold you
away from
rain and snow,

hold you from sunset
to sunset again.

Such a teacup blaze.

I want to drink from you
and stay warm
for all our remaining years.
