I Love You Twice As Much On Sunday

The Stoking of an Early Morning Fire

The essence of fire is so enticing

Your mind gets lost in the lapping flames

As they kiss the logs like wrapped fingers

Searing each place touched

You work hard to center the energy

Listening to each crack sigh and moan

Watching as the core heats beyond chili pepper hot

You stoke it gently till all the juices have run

Left with your coffee and a smile

And a lovely solid blue flame

Knowing all your work will be rewarded

When you tuck yourself back in bed

For a sleek stretch

Then start stoking the fire again
