Passion

I went to a great at event looking at nature, seasons and poetry at the Singleton Environment Centre on Thursday. I was inspired to write this. Check them out for some nature and environment based happenings. I'll be do a poetry event there as part of Friends of Singleton Lake.

What is that spark
That lights the human match
The origin from which
Great ideas and deeds hatch
Passion

What is the fuel
That moves those
To challenge unjust rule
Study hard at school
Passion

What can be seen
Felt and heard
Through actions
And in words
Passion

The light
That shines behind eyes
The quest to answer
All of the whys
Passion

The prime mover
In the smallest, the biggest
Making paths
Through the mist
Passion

The difference
Between a dream
And reality's sweet gleam
You know I mean
Passion

That essence
That brings people together
In something biggers presence
Spreading like smiles in good weather 
Passion

The oxygen that returns
Embers to flames
Inspires people
To take up the reins
Passion

Passion
Adrenaline for the soul 
Passion 
That which makes someone 
Alive and whole
