Heart On Fire

Sometimes,
On the rare occasion,
Someone
has the ability to set my heart on fire.

Have you felt it?

The deep passion
To move
To speak
To sing
To dance
To stir the flames.

I can’t sit still.
I must spread love.

What started as an ember,
A twinkling,
A spark, really…

Became a white hot
Blaze
Spreading wild bursts through
My spirit.

When someone,
Anyone
speaks the truth,
My heart responds.

“Yes!”
“Amen!”
“Let’s go!”
“Who can I share the good news with?”
“Is it me or is the sun brighter?”

I float through the glory filled day.

Praising God
With conversations
And simple acts of kindness.

A smile
An opened door
A helping hand
A loving word
An invitation
A simple gesture to show
“You are cared for.”

Rapidly spreading,
The fire
Engulfs all it reaches.

Don’t let the flames dull.

Stoke.
Stoke.

Converse.
Encounter.
Extend the hands.

One person.
One match.
One ember.
Can burn through to the soul.
Can soon become one army.
Battling.

The fire stoked.
The flame explodes.

Next Time
Maybe
God willing
I will be the one to start the fire in someone else.

  2. It is amazing how the littlest effort can mean so much to someone. It may even change their life. Keep on setting fires with little gestures and inspirational poetry.
