Moon and Fire

Love shines cool like the Moon
and lightens the dark earth for all
Passion fire consumes
all reasoning and logic

Passion is a fever, restless, delirious
Love is a healer, patient and generous

Love find its mirror in the voice of conscience
Passion is guided blindly by desire

Love is like water, the blood of all life
but its stream’s rushing flow is easily choked
by tangles of attachments
whose thorny branches scratch and pierce
when cleared away

Passion’s path is effortless,
free and fast down the mountain
Chasing unattainable satisfaction
from desires that multiply
with each fulfillment

Shall you brave the night by Moonlight
Or stay warm and safe by the fire?
