Nicaris Daniels-Porter
Her glowing heat and passionate blaze,
Sending up a smoky haze.
She makes man separate from beast,
Giving comfort, giving feast.
But beware her nature, for flame shall burn,
It needs little for to spurn.
Her flickering finger licking at wood,
Licking away at flesh if it could.
Burning bright, burning high,
Burning fierce into the sky.
Destroying what may stand in sight,
Instilling fear, sparking fright.
She kills the cold,
But fire scolds,
Man’s enlightenment so very old.
