Through the Flames

Through the Flames


by Shahna Lax

The only hope, or else despair
Lies in the choice of pyre or pyre
To be redeemed from fire by fire
                                      T.S. Eliot

Upon hearing the poem by T.S. Eliot, I saw a man standing before a cave of flames. It was clear that he must enter and go through and face whatever the trial held. As I began work I saw something with wings hovering above - it wasn't a bird, it was some energetic form. It was then that I realized that one must go through, but one does not go through alone.
