In Our Stove

              [Norma photo]

A log can burn,
Release years
Of gathered sunlight
From its rings.
We also burn,
Metabolize the
Ageless light
Of things--
Far fires,
Stars unknown--
And to the
Light of stars
Return our own.


  1. Hi George,

    That stove looks so cheery. And i enjoyed your poem!

  2. Loved the poem and we could almost do with the fire here in Perth today. Our first cool day for about 3 months. Only 20C (68F) today which is a big shock to the system after so many hot days in the high 30Cs.
