The ax chips away at the skin of the wood The moldy parts that are no longer good. (Useless) If the wood should keep me warm throughout the winter nights, I need it to be of the best quality. As I do my dance around the fire and chant empowerment into my limited being. I am blessed with the removal of obstacles. Dead weight that I had carried. (Renewal) I can dance for myself, I can travel through time on my own and I can burn like the strong fire before me.
