the fire under grace


I now see the fire
 you held beneath your calm green
color me awestruck

  3. I love the fire of change. It's what makes me yearn for the fall.

  6. Maybe I'm reading too much into it. But this poem seems to be aware that the color is always there and only shows after the chlorophyll goes away. Yet the poet still remains in awe of the beauty. That is the best way to use science.

  7. Editors Note:

    Fred, do not look for scientific accuracy within these pages...you will be led horribly and magnificently astray

  8. What can be done to
    absolve me of the green
    that my fire be revealed?
