The Spark

Standing for a moment, it catches my eye.
A tiny spark, jumping from the within the fire.
It was once lost, amongst the flames.
But now it shines brightly, alone from the rest.

Something so tempting, as it glows in the dusk.
The time I spend gazing, uncovers much more.
Reaching out, and hoping not to get burned.
Quickly reveals, it can't be had.

Like the fire itself, not to be tamed.
Soon to drift out of reach, away from the heat.
Up through my fingertips, and into the sky.
Across great oceans, far from my life. Leaving a hole, where it once burned.

Perhaps to return, and again catch my eye.
