Dylan Thomas Interpretation

Dylan Thomas Interpretation

Wrestling with the subjective of "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night" in my mind a struggle in defiance of mortality and the perceived references that one should do so in response to living a life unfulfilled. Even if my interpretation is flawed should one rage against mortality for what ever reason as it is a battle one can not win.
Hence I offer a slightly different take on this process. Please offer your thoughts as they may help right my wayward course. It is, however, I feel My interpretation of the process as inspired by Mr. Thomas.


A Raging Fire Shall Gentle This life Leave

from embers glow a fire ascends
as thoughts recall the kindling starts
with energy in focal heat
the oxygen from breeze inhaled

a smoldering glow begins
crackling into hissing smoke
eruption -- small -- explodes
a flame of life that grows

fueled with chosen care
clear and burning bright this flame
brings shine providing light of warmth
to share with all who venture near

measured value in existence
is a product of the burn
reflected in the fuel you use
consumption contribution life

experience it has to give
a vision witnessed benefits
each one is fed in kind the flare
which radiates so life may live

til passing bright delight
through time begins to dim
a roaring fire of valor slows
embers glow to ashen cradle end

a joyful noise lies quiet
energy that sleeps a fertile bed
waking filled with food for life
where flowers in beauty grow
