Ignite

You are a feeling
Crisp, alive; no actual motion
A jumble of emotions between heartbeats
Unrecognizably familiar
You are a place
Still, colourful and delightfully transfixing
Somewhere above the coldness I survive in
We are a time
Brief and only prolonged
By the same moment sought of two hearts
You are a stranger
And yet I fear you not
Listen to the space
Where spirit and faith meet
A sweet imagining of mine
Dissolving fear through
That precious, lived for joy
An instant alone ignites…
