Salamander Emerging


sashaying in a ring of fire





never erased


slish, slosh

time to wash

creak, crack

catch a snack

flick, slick

mirror and mimic

stretch mesh

soak up sun

ever ready to run


refined in fire

flowering desire

disheveled attire

loving  crier


slithering through fire

ushers us higher upon the pyre

of dreams of emerging reality

    I know I’ve seen “emergence” before. I like your poetry just as much as your art if not more. Salamanders…… Had many at the farm, years ago. I felt quite sorry for them, their looks, mostly, and that they did not seem to live that long….

      Did you paint any of them, Leslie? Hmm? If you have a painting of a salamader I would love to incorporate it with this poem.
      Yeah, you’ve seen everything before. You’ve got great artist seeing eyes.
