When Will The Fires Stop

time to write

When will the fires stop
That I can once again create my art
When will life give me space
To pause and start
To see again what is
Around me and within

How fast is this race
How many tasks must we face
Will we ever be done
Will the race ever be won

I breathe and I pause
Seize the moment because 
At last
The task
Is to write again
At last comes the space
And I take up my pen

With soothing release
An injection of peace
My soul empties and sighs
A new creation replies
