Futile Reflection - poem by Barbara Gurney

Futile Reflection

Barbara Gurney

Fire spreads without care

Refusing to surrender the torture

Advancing, hesitating, advancing

– dancing through landscapes

Tormenting with its own beauty

Clashing the brilliance of flames to the

darkness of destruction

We can but stand

Without colour

Bland and ineffective

Bringing contrast like a futile reflection
