Passion for Beauty

by Michael D Nalley   Jan 14, 2014

From the ashes of disaster,
grow the roses of success.
The passion of the master
is needed nonetheless.
The beauty of destruction,
sometimes an old flame
is a catalyst for construction
from burning desire, the same
as reproduction and rebirth
from fire that warms the earth.

    You know I am a big fan of yours and no matter what you write it sounds beautiful.
    What I gather from this piece, something negative can be transformed in to something positive.
