Voices on the Wind Voices in the Garden
Wood-stove ascension by Lars Samson Fire flares from a log, freeing summer days when sunlight toasted its bark and leaves. When the tree knew it would live forever. Radiating passion that grips soil in deep hands and breathes air into sky. Flames flicker its family movie fluttering and snapping with joys and sorrows. Smoke curls rings of seasons past and weaves them up a hollow trunk narrowing to a point of light. From rooftop, a life unfurls, thins to unseen, and descends among trees. A spirit nourishing those still bound to earth.
