Day 27: following embers

When embers flare
and float beyond
the countenance
of fire –
as stars
whose lights shine
long after they extinguish
in space.

We recall their place.

-a singularity-

which will reside as an echo
from just the moment before
after they soar away
with the breeze
that comfort brings
to our memories.
