I Am Fire

"I Am Fire" I am an all consuming one overpowering any and all! When I am spreading and you're in my pathway most definitely you will fall! Everyone feels my presence, nothing can escape my wrath! Ashes and smoke make everyone choke, for those are my aftermath! My flames, they dance, they writhe, they soar! They command the utmost attention! I am alive, my color is red! I'm beyond anyone's comprehension! I dance and play on the surface of the sun! There is no mistaking my light! All I need is the tiniest spark, I cause fright when I do ignite! When people see me coming to life eyes widen and fear takes over! If I touch anything that's combustible it's mine in time and moreover.... They scream, they yell, they cry out my name, my flames laugh with heated desire! I am a mighty, fiery one! I can be the unquenchable fire!!! Strangely though I am used to describe many, many things in life! From fiery passions, to flames of love I am the catalyst for strife! WHO AND WHAT CAN STOP ME? Oh That!!! I've only one fear I can't slaughter! Take that away!!! Don't bring that near me!!! "DON'T YOU DARE COME NEAR WITH THAT WATER!!!" WTA-IV 3/15/2016

Walter, your poem has a lot of impact! After surviving state-wide fires in Alaska and Idaho, I can appreciate your vivid description of the inferno. Your clincher has a nice use of humor for such a serious subject. Also, your use of irony adds to the surprise ending as well. Imagine the fire being afraid of being doused with water? Excellent writing. ~ Sonia
