Firehearted Fox

You are the hand that holds the sword
yet never swings it
You are the heart that holds the fire
yet never spends it
never strikes with it
never hates
or hurls stones
for the sake of rage.

You are the warrior with no enemies
caught in the currents of war
caught, yet always apart from it
as if to teach each of us
that we can be softer
that we can be merciful
that we can achieve
without blind fire
without hate.

I marvel at you,
marvel at the sterling steel
The starlight of source
in your eyes
in your hands, so soft
so open
soul so full
of all the makings of a martyr
of one always at risk
of giving too much
of giving too much
