The taste of fire and frost

I must remind myself

this is still the beginning –

I am not so old

that these days I am living

have become the staple

of years to come –

I am still young

and this is still the beginning

so I’ll stick out my tongue

to taste the frost

and sit and stare into the fire

looking for all of the answers

just as I once did

when I was much younger –

but I am still young

with questions bursting

from my lips and fingertips

and this is just the beginning.
