From a tiny spark to a conflagration, all it takes is imagination.

Kindle A Flame

 

Strike a match,

a tiny spark,

capture it

in time;

we’ll let the

fire smoulder

but you will soon

be mine.

 

A tongue of flame

now flickers,

orange, yellow,

gold;

I’ll step in to

the fire

but no burning

does take hold.

 

The flames will spin,

the flames will twirl,

performing to

my will;

and only once

desire is spent

will the burning

still.

 

Combustible,

igniting,

we’ll have a

conflagration,

the only limit

to this fire

is of

imagination.

 

But too soon

the flames will die,

smoulder,

just leave ash;

and I will no longer be

with you,

simply vanish

in a flash.

I tried for humor on my first comment, but now I'll be serious, I'll always be here for you, Hull, thank you!

Some feelings are fleeting sensations we can only hope to hold onto for longer, and hope that they return. A well written piece, Hully.

Melancholic Wisdom

This captures how it feels to start something new and being unaware whether it'll fizzle out or burn for eternity. Well done Hully

Those flames can certainly be hypnotic to watch. I've felt the same many times. Thanks for giving this a read, Tom.
