Fire Moon

Stags leaping through the wood

Trees screaming as they burn

Flames licking the shadowy sky

Smoke rising to the icy stars

The moon sees all

Gods watching as the fire spreads

Light basking in the orange glow

Crows cawing from the mountains

Antlers falling to the ground

The moon tames all

I was inspired to write this poem after meditating to this music. It was fun to experiment with the subversion of fire and the moon paired together, since the sun is typically associated with fire and the moon with water.
