Creating shapes with eyes closed
Fingers following fine lines
Painting pictures
Magnificent masterpieces
Exploring the unknown
Finding crevices never felt before
Finally understanding
Knowing more than just what is seen
Warm, then cold
Rough, then smooth
As they turn over and over
Pads to plams to knuckles to nails
Sensations spark fire
Spark light
Spark sound
Kindling something deeper
Burning into a blaze of touch
I'll stoke it
I'll feed it
I'll be the lighter of fires

The author's comments:
The inspiration for the last line and the title of this poem came from Architecture in Helsinki's song "Kindling."
