Fire

Some people
Born with fire
In our feet

Energy
Motion
Kinetic
Feeling

Borne into
A frozen land

Standing
Only
By permission
When the asterisk allows

Movement forbidden
Learned to manage
Spirit
In stillness

Mind over matter
Submitting to
Control

Must eventually
Embrace this
Incomprehensible
Dance

Spilling over
One step at a time
