A Moth to a Flame
by Erina Booker

Burn your name in the powder from my wings –
Such flare of you,
The metaphor of moth to flame so sings –
This bond of two;
You need the air in order to burn bright,
I send you breeze whenever I take flight,
Attract/react,
A dual pact,
I circle around light.

I await the aura of your burn –
To fly,
From my patient orbit you can learn –
Rise high,
You need me to reflect your energy,
I balance out your need in synergy,
Air and Fire,
Such desire,
United in complicity.
