The Young Fire - Poem by Chuck Audette

naked flame, you're dancing higher
tasting life with such desire
but time passes, now to bed
of soft black ashes, pillows red
remembers knowing, it's admired
in embers glowing, now attired

    'naked flame, you're dancing higher

    mmmm...a wonderful metaphor for living life to the full, making your mark and being acknowledged. Strong images that paint a lasting picture. Love this...Justine

    I could stare at a fire for hours..........I've never written a poem about a fire though. A great topic. I'm not a fire-bug but, there's something hypnotic about them. Very nice poem. :) Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply
