Poetry: “Fire”

Fire taps into something really ancient in all of us, going back all the way to our first human ancestors that walked the plains of Africa. Both fascinating and terrifying.

***~***~***~***

Fire

This force of nature that has been
A boon for all mankind
For untold years it has been there
A tool that lights our way

Yet there’s always been a threat
In the flickers of a flame
Fire will never quite be tamed
That we must not forget

The warm light of a fire
Can save our life and limb
But if we are not careful
It will devour us

So resist all temptation
To let your guard down now
A fire must demand respect
For a perfect partnership
