RING OF FIRE
I walk briskly at first. Shuffling sacred boulders between each foot.
I teeter on the edge of humanity.
I skirt the jagged precipice of earth’s flaming lips.
I am stunned by this porcelain cup brimming over with exquisite insanity;
a wondrous mathematical equation…
all of earth’s treasures scattered before me.
I jump high-I rise-sail and I soar up and over,
down south into the west over & over, under again, about-face
I jump a high-dive I skydive into the heart of our miraculous,
I am a skimming stone on a great pond
we call the ring of fire .
I am a skimming stone on a great pond,we call the ring of fire
