Fire & Ice
It was in the heat of the coal cave a hundred years back
As coal was burnt as fire abruptly raged spreading
its ashes and flames throughout territories surrounding.
A million or so years ago it was a place-
a place colder than Mars, frosted in ice.
I stroll ‘till I’m no longer lost in oblivion to stumble upon
an object of pure rarity-
at a shoreline of a beach pressed against the Atlantic.
It was coal, a large roughly edged piece, more solid than
rock, created millenniums and millenniums ago.
I gently grasped its surface as it bruised with movement.
It rest on a shelf for only so long, to become a modernized
fairy tale with the actual object being a prop-
a prop constantly in use.
I still smell the left scent of ash from a high flame fire
that I was so intelligent to know of.
One day here, the next day gone-
range of time being greater than a century.
