Cosmic Conundrum II

Cosmic Conundrum II


The Fire of Purpose is the Master of Night,
Both Keeper of Day and Kindle of Passion.
To stifle the Flame is to smother the Light
And bring to an end the Spirit of Action.

No blaze is in sight, I'm a King with no Throne,
No purpose inside, I'm a Hearth with no Home.
Once a Child of Fire, now Son to the Tame,
Self-made slave; I am bound by no chain.

It was mine alone to lose or to keep,
But now the flicker is vanished, left with no claim.
The fault is my own that my quill did so sleep,
And now the quest is my own to earn back my name.

So I mustn't be too weary yet,
For now I must take heart.
My freedom I am bound to get,
But I must seek it first in art.


A webmention is a way for anyone to interact with my content on any platform they like. Most of mine are on Twitter, but if you prefer to "like", "repost", or "mention" my post on any platform like Tumblr, or Reddit, that works too! Here's what you have to do: you can post a link to this post on your social media of choice, or even your own site, and I'll receive a notification. In a few hours, your post should show up below as a mention. Alternatively, if I post a link to this post on Twitter (as an example) and you like, repost, or reply to that tweet, those interactions will show up here as well! Here's the official Webmention description:

Webmention is a web standard for mentions and conversations across the web, a powerful building block that is used for a growing federated network of comments, likes, reposts, and other rich interactions across the decentralized social web.
