unceasing exploration

all messages that dare to leave a trace
come from the places of most deep desire
the ones arising from the hottest fire
what signs we see upon each eager face
with recognition of most sacred place
before the bird erupts upon its pyre
are echoed by the celebrating choir
we feel the power and we see the grace
if not for those who chose to comprehend
the vastness of it all and all the names
present and past and in prophetic strain
sought for one moment just to apprehend
the glory of those universal flames
and so we thank the victim for its pain
