A fire engulfs it, but the bush does not burn. How?

Curiosity, from this pharoa’s son-turned-murder, shepherding fugative. I draw closer.

 

A presence from the fire, none I’ve known, yet all I’ve ever known, calls my name.

 

Holy ground

sandals and sheep

set aside

 

 

for dverse Poets Pub quadrille #51–burning, hosted by Victoria
