The flames fly high above the ground,

Swirling, spinning, round and round,

A sight so mesmerizing, I can’t see,

What is right in front of me.

.

No one dares venture too near,

For flames will hurt; a source of fear,

We all stand back, far away,

And watch the light and colors sway.

.

As we stay frozen, from our fear,

A single moth will venture near,

Drawn in by the heat and light,

Too desperate to know what is right.

.

The folded, brown, unpainted wings, flicker, flitter, fight,

The overly brave and curious moth is swallowed by the light.
