Flicker flame

A flicker, a flame, a FOREST FIRE,

(The embers still glow).

Water, ice, torrential rains,

(The embers still warm).

How do you heat a frozen River,

With a match and flicker-flame?

You put the match in a jar, throw it in,

And

.

..

….

….

Wait

(For it to burble your name).

I am a second-grade teacher and pastor-to-be who loves people. I spend my weekends with friends or wandering the museums of DC alone and with a journal, trying to put words on the places of the soul that still feel wordless. I spent most of my days at school trying to learn patience through my students and running on sheer nerdy passion. I follow Jesus Christ, and savor that as my most important identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
