Like a Chinese Sky Lantern

(Picture from s2010/09/
I long for a song of love
A song to touch my heart
And make it burst into flames

I hunger for fire
Flitting from page to page
I return disappointed, half fed

Where is my song of love
Where is my poet
Where are those words

I had a vision yesterday
that I could be anything I wished
that I could soar higher than I could ever imagine

I long for that song of my life
A song of singular beauty and stark truth
A song to take me to the sky and burn

Like a Chinese sky lantern.
