blossoming flame

by Matthew Sharp

the gear
....the tooth
........the eye
............the grind
........the time
....the sun
........the shadow
....the memory
the pain
....the guilt
........the shame
....the reign
the leader
....the game
........the fire
............the aim
the blossom of beauty in flames

Wow. Follow the leader in the most cryptic game.

Beautiful form and wording. The .....s as controlling the spiral shape.... alluring. The progression --like a collection of elements in life's effort--moving toward dealing with difficulty and overcoming by purification.

I read and re-read and different images conjure up in my mind. I like reading it out loud. I like the idea of a pause to reflect how one may lead to the next.
