NaPoWriMo 2019 – Day 2
In Bonfire Light
Four of us sit around bonfire lit
in hopes of chasing away night’s chill
from bones no longer filled
with vigor of youth’s unruly
Each woman turned inward musing
on this journey we have chosen
to make in hopes of taking
back what seems to have somehow
Perhaps forgetting that the number four
is a solid base, owning a face
not readily tipped or overturned.
But also represents basic, most sacred

Notes: These are the directions, their color and meanings.
East – yellow gold of sunrise and spirit
South – past and red of childhood’s creative fire
West – Future, black with unknowing
North – Blue with knowledge and wisdom
Image is from the kaleidoscope app. I chose it because it contains the four colors mentioned. But when mixed together in proper proportions they make the color purple which symbolizes personal power.
