The Soul
Nedelcho Ganev/Неделчо Ганев
The flame is full
of thick tree shadows
In it shrivels
the forest’s soul.
I gaze at the fire
and the light’s morse code transmits to me:
-the flame is your life:
burn small
and you’ll die out.

And this:
-the flame is your life:
burn big
and you’ll quickly turn to ash.

Small green devils
leap over the fire like kids
and play with it.
