A Spark

coals

It sits, glowing
Hidden beneath the coals
Waiting for the right moment
To launch…

A spark shoots out

spark

Catapults into the darkness
Random trajectory
To land and ignite
Or sizzle
Fade into nothing

It’s not so much the composition of the spark
But the path it takes
That determines the difference between
The raging inferno
And the whisper and sputter
