My foto fires are burning brightly at Cee’s request – just not literally this week. I tried to depict some of the literary ways in which we associate fire, whether it be in those warm delights which flick past our eyes to spark our minds, or through heated emotions (beyond those of romantic notions) that burn intensely in our hearts.
And lastly, here’s my “word depiction” of destruction done by a ‘flickery’ tongue bent on spreading fiery gossip like wildfire!
Word of Mouth
Tantalizing words that tangle the tongue,
Seduce the brain once the brash deed is done.
Flee the wrath!
Their fire flicks the teeth,
meandering wrong paths
as if they have feet.
Oh, turn your head from their creative conception;
Their lustful spice will ruin your perception.
This sweet kiss bestowed will steer you towards death
by the one leaned so near,
who has poison on her breath.
