gentle in the night
burning pure and bright
sharing Her light
She leads and guides
Her Spirit ignites
She holds the Salamander and brings the joy of Fire. She is passionate yet peaceful, and carries the will to persevere. She knows the way, Her wisdom a bright and present flare of graceful glory that shines upon the moment in purity and truth. She excites and inspires and does not take 'no' for an answer for Her wisdom comes from deep within. She is the Goddess of the Core of all that ignites and drives and brings ecstasy of being as the flames rise. She simmers and boils, and all is Hers that is the focus of achievement. She holds hands with water and air. She embraces ether and earth. She is the median and the crossroads where radiant transformation results.
Her escort is the Dragon of Empowerment, its colors brilliant and shimmering as it soars near the sun and swoops away, nothing subtle about this glorious creature who cannot be tamed, only partnered with and respected. Together they scorch the old, the residue, creating cleansed ground for new growth and to light the way as the buds emerge seeking the Light that has participated in, even instigated, their rebirth.
She is not always gentle, for Her sister elementals of water and earth carry ease and softness, and so Fire sometimes gets out of control when she talks Air into more fierce games creating conflagration. Yet She is wise and empowering in Her unique qualities when approached in truth, honor and love for Her ability to transform.
I am not at ease with Fire. She can frighten and intimidate me with Her ferocity and determination, as She can take over--and overwhelm--and burn up desire in one mighty blaze. Yet She is here, within, and I can learn to Be with Her. Learn to hold hands, communicate, create, and transform.
