October 14, 2015 Poets United -- Midweek Motif/ Fire

Fire

emotional fire                           fire in the belly                   fire of love

originates in the same place     heartburn                           fire of passion

still... one gets angry                says ugly things                  strikes to hurt

later doesn't remember             it can all be frustrating        handling fire

wildfire                                     burning forests                     burning bridges

what is it all about                    i am right                              i beat my chest

throw fire balls to the wind      start fire                                with twigs and words

fire of the heart                         burn your fingers                   don't you know

  2. Frustrating....and it burns the heart too, when someone doesnt remember . Beating the chest and tossing fireballs especially stood out for me in this poem.

  5. Oh yes, it can be frustrating handling fire indeed! Especially emotional fire...the hardest of all to deal with!

  6. Handling fire is frustrating - perhaps because it forces us to act more quickly than we'd like...although fire in the belly is good..and sustaining
