Fire

A tongue of flame dances with passion of red, Silently and softly in a large backyard. It's like an itch of the sky as the smoke spreads. Its ineffable incandescence leaves Earth charred. Calm down. Fire and flames ain't the thing you should dread It will lick your skin, and yet leave you no scar. Beneath the flame, the air chokes the acrid smoke. A scarlet oak makes the dye of the flames flow.

awesome, write, Skyler, Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@

Thanks for your comment, Linda :D It was actually an assignment my teacher had assigned. It was my first time to write poems, and I spent quite a lot of time to think how to rhyme. When I went through my poems after I finished, I found they were more like puzzles instead of poems. Every single comment on my work did encourage me to read and write poems, so thanks a lot XDD

Hi Skat, thank you for your comments and kindness. I didn’t actually expect any comments for my poems on account to my little experience of writing them. I have to say i was surprising when I checked my poem and saw comments below it. Nice to talk to you. Thanks again for liking my poem. So glad to have you as a friend. XDD
