Astride a Fire

O’ for a muse of fireFor that spark of energy

The flickering inspiration that guided the caveman

They left the darkness, emboldened by their discovery

Now we, astride our own flames, strike out for the stars

For those great and distant balls of fire

Which is the true inspiration?

The true muse?

The flames we ride or the flames we seek.
