“Firetop”

Spinning up toward the top.

Fire swirls in and about.

It wants to be seen,

So that others will join the cause.

Combustible chlorophyll climbing branch after branch,

A melting metamorphosis defying gravity.

Reaching out to the setting sun,

Looking to light descending darkness.

Darkness falls,

But never wins.

Chased away by a colossal elliptical orbit.

Stardust contains all the fuel needed to keep the fires burning,

Until such time that they don’t.
