"Forging By Fire" (by Joe DiMino)

The wind is not all
Breath and flying;
As the sea
More than current
And buoyancy—
There is an earth-temperament
Connecting all elements

A forging by fire…

You and I
Less connected by body
Than we are
By spirit-climate

Certain heating we call war
A negative alchemy

And divine smelting,
Liquid gold
Pure essence
Poured forth from the heart
Is the transformation
We come to know
As God’s love manifest….
