Fire Glow

sleepy fire glow lashes
settle into dreams,
persevering mentor
firm sincerity

hesitating, wanting,
eyes on the skies,
elementary foothold,
clumsy fireflies

lashes beating,
catch air, can't fly,
suffer, self-defeating
try and try
and he urges, purges
hands idle, unseen
compassionately feeds
stuttered starts in between
gives sweet selfless knowledge
to souls empty, in need
gently blows golden wing dust
for beautiful speed

time for the test
doctor of wise
artful, devoted,
caring, quiet sighs

sleepy fire glow kindled
light up the night sky
never forgetting, who
encouraged them to fly

Dedicated to Dr. Charles A Ferguson
who has invested his heart in the art of teaching.
