Spirit Of Fire In The Water

Light, celebrated in the flame
The heat burning through the shine
Warm kiss of the waving touch
Comfy, lean on the surfaces

Embodied as the heat, spirit of fire
Enliven small body with desires
Changed when it feed with anger
Growing bigger, burning hearts of other
Cursed touches left to be ashes, gray color

Minutes in reigning power
Now the fire goes down
Gone, when the sky cries
Dropping the purest water
Silent the fire, suppressed the anger
Somehow when extinction of warm
Welcoming the rise of arrogant
Water empowered with freezing touch
Frozen as snow, hot turn cold

When power flaming ego in the fire,
As also arrogant freezing the water
Heat left, diffused with miracles
Till there's nothing for each other
When tolerate not in heart of lovers

Spirit of fire, burning in the sun
Kissed the land sealed with heat warm
Melt the icy heart, sent by celebrated sunlight
The snow white in the winter alive again
Liquid as freedom, ice captured the warm
Back to flow through the river it goes

A love shared between fire and water
Two bodies of untouchable
Unites into one shared kiss
Preserve the heat into modesty
Warming when it's too cold
Cooling when it's too hot

Tolerate of two bodies
water and fire in a bond of heat
Spirit of fire swim in the heart of water
Promised harmony, keep warm in the winter
Bringing cold refreshing in this summer
Ego of each in such altered flow spirit tendency
Create a world of respect and tolerate
When two show powers holding together
Seal cold to the fire, and flame fire to the ice
Burning love in frozen hearts
Living in warm ice forever after
As spirit of fire In the water

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem i wrote in the last day of July, forcing myself to write again. Picking Fire and Ice as two subjects, i used heat as the junction of both, as well as the heat here i referred it as 'Spirit of fire' and heat carry the meaning of tolerate.The first two stanzas i tried to tell the usefulness of the fire, if we able to control, but if it become to big, it will burn all, out of control (even try to burn the heat, or burning the tolerate in self flame) a small matter if we create it as a big issues, it will be worst. and the big fire here growing because of ego flames in self...In third stanza i recall the power of thing has a limit since there always a thing or someone that can surpass our ability, like water kill fire....However the same thing happened if we turn to be arrogant, lost of heat, lost of tolerate then like a water it become an ice..too cold out of touch

If the water kill the fire, the fire melt the ice to be water and the water can be really warm, comfy for all...and here i wanted to show if we use each other care power and ability in proper way we shall create a nice harmony place, so i symbolized it as a love between fire and water(ice) ..if it too cold fire send more heat to warm, if it too hot, could be water and ice must absorb more heat to maintain the in our life if both are temper persons and no one to reduce anger the fire is burning all even one must be water or calm fire to balance the relationship, applicable for everyone. Water is a state where ice and fire meet, the melted ice (water) as the body and the warm (giving water stay in fluid) was from heat, spirit of fire..actually lot of things i wanted to add in the poem like vapor and how the vapor back calming as the rain bla bla, living without fire bla bla bla but i guess it is enough too long right hahhaah so i stop it there..hope this help you to understand this :) will coming back to the new poem later_Unwritten SoulSoul

    The message of tolerance and harmony, you have put across in a very effective way! Fires of anger should be extinguished with the showers of tolerance and love! The ice of coldness and bitterness should be melted by the warmth of forgiveness and understanding! Great write! (Report) Reply

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.
