The earth was aflame

The earth was aflame
against the peripheries of the universe
The flames were extinguished and became
ash again
I saw those eyes – blue and shiny
dark with that burning gaze
You sought the periphery
Cut loose from the earth – child of man
in order to fall back
And mix your ashes with mother earth
Why? To what purpose?
Wanting, needing, they rose and fell
Sparks and embers in the dark of the night
God is in everything
Everything is in us (God)
Brothers in that great game of life!
The game is desired, risked and done
In order to desire, risk and die once again
