The Ember of Opportunity

At the edge of triple digit heat

There is an ember floating

In the air so humid

That it’s easy to think

It won’t catch.

But don’t be fooled

I am most free,

Most stable,

Amid water.

And I will spread.

Everyone will be marked,

Some by a warm hug,

Others by a passionate charing

Smolder I may,

smoke may be all that you see,

At times,

But time forever changes,

And I never quit.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
