Fire, Fire, Fire! - Poem by Noel Horlanda

Pyro, Fuego, Fire,
It’s a power, a strength,
A source of light,
Luminescent as solar energy,
Incandescent as moonbeams,
Luminosity of stars
Effulgence of blue heavens
It kindles, ignites vivid minds,
Imaginations, carnival brilliance,
Illuminates the world, the universe,
In the beginning a friend,
It leads, guides your way,
Makes you warm, live, survive, yet
In the end, if abuse, left alone,
Becomes a monster, a destroyer,
Murderer, a spoiler it is,
Instill fear in you, the phobia overrule us,
Soon the cosmos, the macrocosm,
Solar, lunar, mankind to ashes,
Lustrous existence gone,
All in darkness, inky black
Empty space, serenity, tranquility but then,
The essence is nothing without -
Fire! Fire! Fire!

    Dichotomic attributes of fire well portrayed…

    Its we responsible to [mis]use it …but fire is indifferent…

    Positives are more than negatives …we’ve to strive to enkindle our inner self …misuse will be cordoned…

    you painted a picture of fire in two ways, good and bad. on one hand, fire provides warmth and is productive to life, on the other hand it provides harm and is destructive to life. whichever way, it plays an important role in our lives. (Report)Reply

    I totally agree. Though outbreaks are plentiful and disastrous, we wouldn't be as evolved without it or even as happy and content without it. Great read. ~Shyana K~<3 (Report)Reply

    Fire brings life but when it outbreaks it destroys vegetation, animals, humanbeings, everything which comes in its way but the essence is, as you said, nothing without fire. A good meaningful poem........10/10.
